You may wish to look at <<The Winter's Tale: Critical Essays>>.  Edited by
Maurice Hunt, Garland, 1995. This recently published volume has reprinted about
20 theater reviews of the play from 1802-1988 as well as critical discussions
of the play.

Subject:        Time as female goddess. [Winter's Tale Productions]

My production will have a female goddess' figure who also plays the bear and
Time.

You might be interested in a performance of Pericles at the Stratford Festival,
Ontario, in 1974 where the part of Gower was played by a young black woman
actress (Renee Rogers).  The effect was very spiritual as she looked like a
goddess figure with a crown and a long gold robe. She appeared high above the
main stage with all lights off except a spotlight on her.  A similar figure
would probably work well as Time in Winter's Tale, particularly because of the
strong female focus in that play.

Stratford Festival has a web site where you might get more information about
their productions of Winter's Tale.

The World Shakespeare Bibliography (in its annual version in Shakespeare
Quarterly and in The World Shakespeare Bibliography on CD-ROM) provides
production details for numerous productions of Winter's Tale (and reviews and
related studies).
