I see Mark Rylance as one of the roadsweeepers that the reconstructed
Globe displaced.

If he's prepared to take on that role, I'll be happy to guest direct a
production of Henry VIII and see if the place will burn.  That would be
authenticity!

Cheers,
John Drakakis

This is NOT a flame!  It has struck me that some of the discussion on
this subject, good as it has been, demonstrates that we probably need a
serious and broad re-introduction of instruction in bibliography and
textual criticism in colleges and universities.  I think that in the old
days (1960s?) there would not have been as much "wonderment" over early
modern typography when this sort of study was pretty generally
compulsory for students in literature.  Of course, I must declare an
interest in such a re-introduction, but have not other "old folks" felt
the same thing when they saw some of the postings on this subject?

There are commercial sources for scripts, bound script-fashion, not
book-fashion, in Los Angeles and New York.  One in LA has a particular
reputation for completeness; it has most individual episodes of most TV
series, as well as nearly all commercially released films.  That said,
I'm sorry I don't know its name offhand, but if anyone would like to
know, write me privately and I'll get it from my screenwriter friend.
