Subject: Query about A SHREW
At the moment I am completing a brief stage history of THE TAMING OF A
SHREW or, more accurately, a history of the effect of A SHREW upon the
staging of THE TAMING OF THE SHREW.
This amounts mostly to the importation of the additional matter for Sly
from A SHREW into productions of THE SHREW, as most will know. What I
would like to know is whether anybody on SHAKSPER knows of any a filmed
version of the Christopher Sly material? I do not know that Sly has
ever appeared on film or television.
On the other hand, if anyone knows of a performance of A SHREW or
recalls any interesting use of material from that version onstage, I
would be grateful for details.
