Comment:        Re: SHK 6.0590  Qs: Playing Shakespeare Videos
 
The John Barton series of "Acting Shakespeare" is 12 hours of episodes.  It is
12 lessons.  I spent 2 years trying to find them and finally went to a
professor at Berkeley who used them with his classes.
 
I suggest you try the same.  Look to a university near you with a good drama
department and try to locate them that way.  To my knowledge also, you might
contact the RSC in London and they may have the tapes for sale.  My memory is
that they were quite expensive and that is why I decided not to go that way.
 
Good Luck!!

re. Murray Pomerance's search for tapes of this series:
 
The 11-part series is available from Films for the Humanities & Sciences, POBox
2053, Princeton, NJ  08543-2053; 800-257-5126.
 
The price is (gasp!) $939.00.  (Why is everything from this outfit so
overpriced?)  The series is on VHS cassette.  Individual programs cost $89.95.
 
They offer a lot of Shakespeare stuff.
