The production of Errors at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre, Lincoln Center in June
1987 was shown on PBS stations.  The video is 120 mins. long and it is held by
the Vivian Beaumont.  You might try calling the Theatre Library at Lincoln
Center (212-870-1641) to ask about its availability.
 
This information comes from a wonderful reference source that all SHAKSPERIANS
might find useful for such questions about films: SHAKESPEARE On SCREEN, by Ken
Rothwell and Annabelle Melzer (NY: Neal Schuman, 1990). It is a goldmine of all
information on the existence and availability of Shakespeare films, from the
earliest times to about 1990, including addresses and phone numbers for holding
archives.

The COMEDY OF ERRORS presented at Lincoln Center in 1987 starred the Flying
Karamazov Brothers, Avner the Eccentric, Ethyl Eichelberger, and a score of
other actors possessing extraordinary physical skills--juggling, baton
twirling, tap dancing, rope walking, etc.
 
The production was first presented in 1983 at Chicago's Goodman Theatre and was
later remounted as part of the 1984 Olympic Arts Festival in Los Angeles.
 
The 1987 production was broadcast on PBS as part of their "Live at Lincoln
Center" series.  To obtain a video of the production, you might want to try
contacting your local PBS affiliate or a local library.  I once heard from a
reliable source that the NYPL has a copy.
