Comment:        Re: SHK 6.0469 Directing
 
Professor Orgel:
 
But just because Hamlet doesn't have much respect for the groundlings doesn't
mean they won't have any respect for him.  I spent five years in Maritime
Canada doing my undergraduate and MA, and it's most popular music, as well as
humour, is self-deprecating, making fun of Newfies, Capers, and Bluenosers.
 
I also went to high school in northern Ontario, where saying you hate northern
Ontario was the sine qua non of sophistication.  Hamlet's despisal of the
groundlings might have only elicited their admiration.
 
Sincerely,
Sean.

There is, of course, THE TEDDY BEAR MUSEUM, located, believe it or not, at 19,
Greenhill Street, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire CV37 6LF. They stock
William Shakespeare bears, made to order (perhaps not inappropriately) by a
German company. The price is #60.00 sterling per bear and they operate a
world-wide mail-order service. Rather better value than the RSC theatre I'd
say, despite the limited character-development. The telephone number is 01789
293160. This is what we cultural materialists mean by research. If a Francis
Bearcon answers, don't hang up.
