Subject:        Parallel Scenes

A friend wants to present two parallel scenes at a spring celebration of
Shakespeare for the entire college community.  One scene would be from a
Shakepeare play and the very same scene would be from a modern offshoot. . In
addition to directing student-actors in the two scenes, she would like to show
screened versions of the two scenes. What won't work are general offshoots that
do not have a close parallel scene. For the modern scene, she will need a
script and permission to use it.

One obvious choice would be a scene from *Rom.* and a parallel scene from
*Westside Story.* Scripts and films are available for both versions. But *Rom*
and *West-Side Story* may be too familiar for the intended audience.

Her question: what OTHER plays would work?  Are there other "sets" where a Shn
scene and an offshoot's scene would match? Are scripts available at a
reasonable cost? Are videotapes available?

If you can suggest not only particular offshoots but also particular scenes,
that would be very helpful.

Many thanks for your help,
Bernice W. Kliman

I am posting this for a colleague who is not yet a member of this list. Replies
should be sent directly to her.

>I am currently hunting information on the music of Twelfth Night for an
>upcoming production at Bishop's University.  Any info on original music
>(including recordings, sheet music, or MIDI links) as well as music composed
>for the show in any period/place of production would be a big help, as would
>research hints (online and otherwise).

>It would also be great to hear about the pieces chosen for other 12th Night
>productions.

        Thanks!

Subject:        Non Shakesperean Plays

I am doing some research on the interchange between court drama / masques and
the public theatre.  The use of masques and dumb shows in Jacobean tragedies
eg. "Women Beware Women" has been extensively discussed - likewise
Shakespeare's use of the magic of the masque in his late comedies.  I'm looking
for some plays by other dramatists which make use of the masque, and don't
really know where to begin. I'd be grateful for any suggestions or comments.
