As far as I know, the ACT production of "Shrew" is not available anywhere. ACT
does not own the rights, but Great Performances did at one time. Neither Marc
Singer nor his agent have a copy of the show. WNET in New York, I believe, owns
the rights, but they will not release it because of cost. It's sad that there
are so many resources that could potentially be used as educational tools which
cannot be accessed. I understand that Great Performances, WGBH, WNET, et al.,
use their money for the creation and production of new shows, rather than
maintenance of old ones.
 
Does anybody have any access to the inner workings of these places and to how
we could get them to release a few things?
 
I'm frustrated.

I know I've got this one confused, and I'm not sure that the question has
not already been answered, but was there ever a video made of the Peter
*Brook* production of MND? And if so does anyone know where it is to be
found?
 
Thanks.
