PS
 
Shakesperean musicals
 
Calling other Canadians  1969? -70/ -71? Cronenberg 15-? There were two
versions of a "serious" rock opera treatment of Hamlet, one for the theatre and
one performed on CBC radio - music by Cliff ....?  Fragments, but maybe others
will remember more. I did hear it, but did not, as you can see, find it
memorable.

For Gavin Witt and interested others: The Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis did
the Richard-Henry IV-Henry V sequence in 1990, and combined the two parts of
Henry IV into one. The focus was (to my mind, at least) on the
Hal-Henry-Falstaff triangle. I have an extra copy of the program and I also
have the study guide that the Guthrie put together for educators from which I
could make material available. The guide includes reprints of some significant
essays, as well as material prepared for the guide; it's 163 pages long, and
the Guthrie might well still have copies. If you want to contact them directly,
write: The Guthrie Theater, Vineland Place, Minneapolis MN 55403 or call (612)
347-1100. I've also done some work in two different classes using *My Own
Private Idaho*; students are very surprised and intrigued when they become
aware of what's going on. (A significant number of those who had seen the film
when it was first released but before they ever read the play were particularly
illuminated. I love the fact that the closing credits includes "additional
dialogue by William Shakespeare.")

Re: conflacted HIV.  I seem to remember reading an adaptation prepared for the
Goodman Theatre sometime in the early/mid seventies.  You might want to check
out Theatre World from those years.  Or give the Goodman a call.
