Comment:        Re: SHK 6.0953 Qs: Payne Roet

I too saw these claims in Speght's edition. However, I don't see much
incredible about it. If you go far enough back it is quite possible to find
common ancestors: remember that Speght is only tracing the common line, not the
complete thing. Of course, Speght may have invented the whole thing, as you
imply. But that doesn't mean he was wrong. I'm afraid I didn't find out who
Payne Roet was either, but I only looked in the most cursory fashion. I assumed
that Roet would be spent Rowett in the usual modern sources.

Yours,
Moray McConnachie

The Castle Rock website for the new film version of *Othello* has just added
the screenplay to their site. The URL is http://othello.guide.com. The homepage
indicates that they plan to continue to add information to the site over time.
Happy surfing!

Can anyone tell me if the original cast is in the travelling production of the
RSC's Midsummer Night's Dream?  I saw the opening night performance in
Stratford two years ago, and have a profound admiration of Gonet's and
Barrett's talents, as well as a very unscholarly crush on Stephens.

(However, I completely agree with whomever it was who suggested that this
production felt like a "warm-up" for the actors' larger roles that season).

Thanks!

Comment:        Re: SHK 7.0054  Re: Cross-Dressing

It's Susan Mather, again--Here's a list of three articles I found lying on my
floor from last semester.  One I used twice--Phyllis Rackin's "Androgyny,
Mimesis, and the Marriage of the Boy Heroine on the English Renaissance
Stage"--very good, and Dr. Rackin happens to be a member of this listserv.  Jan
Kott's article, "The Gender of Rosalind,"--I think in Theatre Quarterly--was
very good--again, on androgyny.  Finally, Jean E. Howard's "Crossdressing, The
Theatre, and Gender Struggle in Early Modern England"--SQ.  Wait!  Laura
Levine, "Men in Women's Clothing: Antitheatricality and Effeminization from
1579-1642."  Criticism, 28 [1986], 121-43.

Sorry, I can't find the actual bibliography.--
