Subject: RE: The Globe Theater Medallions
I would appreciate information about medallions of each of the 36 plays
which apparently are displayed in the door of the new Globe Theater. I
have been told that the medallions are nicely done.
If true, I'd like to receive the molds-or at least fine photos of
them-so that we can use those images in new benches designed for the
glorious Utah Shakespearean Festival in Cedar City.
There, the site of our annual family pilgrimage for their first-rate
productions and unbeatable seminars under the cedar trees, we plan to
install a number of wooden benches with elaborate iron (or whatever)
moldings on the backs, each bench having three or four ovals featuring
Shakespeare characters. For those ovals we thought that the 36
medallions from the Globe would not only be beautiful but would also tie
the Utah theaters to the Globe in an artistic, and transcendent, way.
Information on the medallions should be sent directly to me at
Best, Ken Adelman
