Can anyone provide me with a phone/fax/address for a group called something
like "The Revised Shakespeare Company." They perform 30 plays in 30 minutes (or
something along that line). Thanks.
 
     Private e-mail is fine

On the plane back from Portland last weekend, I chanced to see, in someone
else's copy of *The Oregonian,* a photograph of a half-completed *Globe*
playhouse. When I borrowed the newspaper, I read a few lines of copy announcing
that there will be a season of plays there in 1995 (though I didn't see the
name of any company, or any season or dates). I'm assuming that this is the
late Sam Wannamaker's Globe project. Reading my email when I returned, I saw
the announcement of the attractive-sounding (but unhappily-acronymned) Center
for Renaissance and Shakespeare Staging.  Is anyone on the Center's faculty
involved with staging-decisions at this new Globe? Does anyone have more
information on the Wannamaker project? More broadly, can anyone pass on any
current information on the Rose or Globe excavations? The last time I saw the
Rose site, it wasn't even a hole in the ground any more, the holes having all
been back-filled by Simon Blatherwick and his merry men; but there was talk of
uncovering the excavations once again as a basement exhibit in the office
building which was to be built over the site. Is that anywhere near happening
yet? And is there any hope of getting rid of the listed Georgian building (dark
Guy Fawkesian thoughts!) that sits on top of the original Globe? Apologies to
subscribers of longer standing if this has all been discussed already.
