Robin Williams is Osric and Billy Crystal is the Gravedigger if I recall from
the nearly 20 minute preview on the tape of Othello.

I have a question of my own.  Has anyone seen the Company of Women's production
of King Lear?  I will be seeing it tonight.  I saw their Henry V two years ago
at Smith College and was completely blown away by the presentation of the
characters.

Ed W.--some of us accepted the Michael Keaton performance in Branagh's _Much
Ado_ as an inspired bit of work firmly within the tradition of Will Kemp.

Also please note that Robin Williams was trained at Julliard.

It seems that many on this list have a problem with actors and modern acting?

SHAKSPEReans may be interested in the long trailer for Branagh's forthcoming
"Hamlet" which is on the tape of "Othello" now in the video shops. It combines
color bits from the film with black and white commentary by Branagh. The film
is set in the nineteenth century, with exterior locations at Blenheim Palace.
There are some interesting conceptions of scenes, especially the nunnery scene.
