My new site

http://worldmall.com/erf/macbeth.htm

grew out of a question about exactly what is "grease that's sweaten from
the murderer's gibbet".

I thought that students should have an easy place to find out the
historical background for the play as well.  I decided to put everything
I could find in one place.

If anyone has Holinshed's sources, I'd be most grateful for a
snailmailed photocopy.

I'm grateful for this list, which I've enjoyed going on three years
how.  Health and friendship.

nevertheless, I thought some might be interest.  HMC]

Dear Shakespeare Professional:

ANNOUNCING A NEW VIDEO  - SHAKESPEARE'S GLOBE THEATRE RESTORED

MUCH ADO ABOUT SOMETHING!

This new video, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre Restored, documents eighteen
months of planning, rehearsal, location work, and post-production by the
Shakespeare Program of the University of California at Berkeley,
culminating in a historically significant production of Much Ado About
Nothing. This was an unforgettable experience for the UCB actors from
the Shakespeare Program to stage the first recorded Elizabethan
production of Shakespeare on the newly rebuilt Globe stage,

Almost 4 centuries after Shakespeare's original Globe Theatre commenced
performances in 1599, Queen Elizabeth II officially opened the
reconstructed Elizabethan Theatre for its first full season in June
1997.

Inspired by Actor Sam Wanamaker, the restored Globe Theatre, built on
the Bankside of the river Thames near its original site in Southwark,
London, has no modern parallel.

To celebrate Shakespeare's work and to recreate performances with the
original setting and effects for which Shakespeare wrote his greatest
plays, the rebuilt and fully operational Globe provides a venue for
teaching and studying his plays in the ultimate authentic performance
setting. The Restored Globe Theatre illuminates Shakespeare's original
open air acoustics and stage-craft.

According to Hugh M. Richmond, Educational Director of the Shakespeare
Globe Centre, U.S.A. and Professor of English at the University of
California at Berkeley,

"This video showcases some of the ways in which performance on the
original configuration of the Shakespearean stage diverges from modern
practice.  Above all, the broad stage, pillars and accessibility of the
audience require a dynamic choreography and outgoing style providing a
fresh model for modern theatre."
