Subject:        mailing lists, etc. . . .

For a variety of reasons, I've seen more films of Shakespeare's plays
than actual stage performances (which I've seen very few of despite a
brief residence in Washington, DC).  Basically, I owe my enthusiasm for
(though not my introduction to) Shakespeare to an in-class comparison of
Olivier's & Branaugh's films of Henry V during my last year as an
undergraduate.  So, would anyone be kind enough to recommend to me a
means of getting myself on the mailing lists of Shakespeare festivals,
theatres, & companies any & everywhere?  Is there a way to do it w/o
calling/writing each org.  individually?  If not, which, in your opinion
would you contact first?

I would also appreciate recommendations of the better
Shakespeare-related sites on the www.  Please respond off-list if you
feel it more appropriate.  I realize that as a subscriber to this list
that I should probably already be well aware of the things I'm asking
about, but what can I say . . . I'm a slacker.

Thanks in advance,
Lex Ames

P.S.  Thanks to all those who responded (privately) earlier this summer
to my plea for advice as to which graduate program I ought to transfer
to in the fall.  FYI, I'll be attending the University of Alabama . .

Can anyone recommend a VHS-recorded performance or film (preferably a
full-performance) of A Mid-Summer Night's Dream?  I'm feeling seasonal .

Well, that is more or less how its starts. In fact, it starts with an
overhead shot (almost Busby Berkeley-ish) looking down on the circle of
chairs, then pans around the circle of players while organ music plays
in the background. And yes, the youngest witch is a drooler...
