Adrian Kiernander mentioned having heard of a US production of
GALLATHEA.  Does anyone have more information about it?  Where and
when?  I'd really like to make a case for more productions of this
script and any evidence of past work will be extremely helpful.

Comment:        Re: SHK 8.1209  Q: Recording

Anyone interested in early audio recordings of Shakespeare actors ought
to look out for an extraordinary CD called Great Shakespeareans. The
earliest recording on it is a very scratchy cylinder of Edwin Booth as
Othello recorded in the 1880s but there are wonderful early pieces of
Gielgud, Beerbohm Tree, Forbes Robertson and others. They have included
a number of different recordings of some speeches so that you can
compare and contrast and the sleeve-notes are very full and informative.
I bought my copy from The Shakespeare Bookshop, Henley Street,
Stratford-upon-Avon, UK and they will happily deal with mail orders.
Their phone number is +44  1789 292176.
