Damn damn damn, he's right of course!  Don't know how I made that
mistake.

Ah well, who do we talk to about getting a film made of 'The Winter's
Tale'?

Comment:        Re: SHK 8.0877 Theatre Management

There are two schools I can think of off the top of my head that have
Theatre Management as a major.  One of those schools would be Emerson
College in Boston, the other would be Carnegie Mellon.  I don't know
what Carnegie has for undergrad, but I know they have a pretty intense
graduate program for theatre management, so I would imagine they would
have some sort of undergrad program as well.

As for Emerson, I am currently a graduate student there in Theatre
Education, but my assistantship is with the Marketing Director of
Emerson Stage.  She teaches a class every year of theatre management
with the director of the Performing Arts division.  Right now she is
advising two students for their projects in theatre management as a
major.  If you'd like to talk with her or simply contact Emerson for
more information, let me know.

Good luck!

Sincerely,
Jodi Clark
Emerson College

Scott,

I can't help with the Web Site, but I can give you the phone number of
Globe Education.  Try calling: 0171 620 0202. If you're dialing from the
U.S., dial 011 44 first.

I maintain a Globe website at http://www.rdg.ac.uk/globe which is the
closest to being an "official" one, although it is on the University of
Reading server.

There will very soon be a new "official" website specifically for Globe
Education. The Director of Education is Patrick Spottiswoode. At present
you can get in touch with Globe Ed. via email by writing to Fiona Banks

All the other respondents seem correct in identifying Branagh's A
MIDWINTER'S TALE [English title from a famous carol, IN THE BLEAK
MIDWINTER].

For those interested, the film is available on video.  I have an
excellent copy on laserdisc, and it should be on tape also.

Joseph Lockett imagines a slight against Americans in the change of
title from IN THE BLEAK MIDWINTER to MIDWINTER'S TALE. All I see as a
Scottish Canadian is that the original UK title makes a reference to an
extremely popular Christmas Carol set to lovely music by Holst.

I have a tape of a Japanese production of WT made about 15 years ago.
The director is (I think!) named Koichi Kimura; the name meant nothing
to my Japanese theater-buff friends. It's put out by a company named
Spiral. It's a very energetic, quite straightforward production, full of
attractive young actors-it has sort of the feel of a Young Vic
production. Unlike the Ninagawa Hamlet and Suzuki Macbeth and Tokyo
Globe Lear, there's nothing especially Japanese about it. It's the only
WT I know other than the BBC/Time-Life video.
