Subject:        Shrew Tape

Many years ago I videotaped three scenes from a very fine production of
The Taming of the Shrew, which was broadcast on ETV or some other cable
network.  Unfortunately, I no long have documentation on the
production.  I believe it was done in San Francisco.  My student has
borrowed the tape and wants to cite it in a paper. In this production,
Kate wears a red gown in the final scene and Bianca is in white
(including a platinum blonde wig).  The play ends with Petruchio and
Kate leaving from a doorway at the top of  a set of stairs.  After the
wedding gathering leaves through the lower doorway, the body of
Christopher Sly can be seen, left behind and sprawled on the floor---the
same actor who plays Petruchio also plays Sly.  What I need is
information about the company, the director, the major players, and the
date. Actually, I'll take any information that you may have.

Thank you,
Nick Clary
