Comment:        Re: SHK 6.0299  Re: The Ending of *King Lear*
 
I was at a lecture at the Folger Library in D.C. last year,  I believe that the
lecturer said that in the end of the 18th or 19th Century that the ending of
*King Lear* was so depressing that most theaters performed the ending as a
comedy.  This practice has stopped in this century, (thank God).  Has anyone
else heard this, or do I have the wrong production in mind?

Thanks to those who have written with suggestions about Romeo and Juliet. I
have a clarification and another question:  the clarification is that I'm not
looking for information on productions, but the best sources possible on the
play, scholarly, cultural, the whole schmear.  And, another question:  what
text would you recommend if you were staging the play.  Roger Gross and others
who have staged it, what text did you use?
 
Thanks once more.  Again, private responses are probably most appropriate.
