Does anyone know if Anthony Sher's Richard III is available on video? If
so, where can I get it?

Thanks,

I didn't actually find that Fiona Shaw's Richard II translated
successfully to film.  In the Cottesloe theatre, the production was
tense and moving, with two great central performances from Ms Shaw and
David Threlfal.  On video, the change of cast for Bolingbroke wasn't in
my opinion successful, and Ms Shaw's performance came over as extremely
self-indulgent and mawkish.  I think the two media are so different that
it's very difficult to make a production that worked in the theatre
operate as successfully on film, and vice versa.  It's a point made by
Jonathan Miller in Subsequent Performances in the mid-eighties, and so
far I haven't seen anything that suggests he's wrong.

Comment:        Re: SHK 9.1021  Re: Lear on PBS

Several people have mentioned a televised version of the Fiona
Shaw/Deborah Warner _Richard II_: was this broadcast in the U.S.?  While
I watch little television, I try to be attuned to productions such as
this. Of course, if it was broadcast on cable, I'm out of luck as a
non-subscriber, but I would certainly love to see it. Does anyone know
if it's available on video? A special thanks to Ed Pixley for his
eloquent defense of risk-taking actors; having worked on four
Shakespeare productions (small companies, unpaid actors) in the last
year, I know how much care and passion goes into the work, and critical
carping that fails to take that into account is extremely frustrating.
