Subject: Spanish Actresses
Comment:        Re: SHK Spanish Actresses

A recent poster asked me for a reference on a statement I made with
regard to the Spanish attitude towards actresses. It seems I have
misplaced his name and address, so must hope that he will see this.

The author is Heinz Gerstinger, the book is Lope de Vega and Spanish
Drama, NY, Ungar, 1974, p. 25.

"The first restriction lifted [in 1600, after three years of closure due
to the deaths of Philip II's sister, and then Philip himself] was the
ban on stage appearances of actresses, as the archbishop of Madrid was
personally of the opinion that the playing of women's roles by boys in
female clothing encouraged immoral ideas."

Subject:        Juilliard's Spring Rep.

Researching for performance options to offer my Marymount Manhattan
class I discovered the following productions coming up in Juilliard's
"Spring Repertoire" at the Drama Theatre there:

"The Winter's Tale":  April 6 - 9

"The Duchess of Malfi":  April 27 - May 1

"Macbeth": May 15-20  ( third year students )

They are also doing "The Cherry Orchard," March 26-28, and Lanford
Wilson's "Redwood Curtain," April 16-19.

Tickets are $15.  Call the Juilliard box office at (212) 799-5000, ext.
7406  for ticket information.

I used to work on these productions.  They are one of New York's
best-kept theater secrets. The acting is young and earnest, but
polished, and the production values are very high.  The last "Winter's
Tale" I saw there, the one I worked on, starred Kelly McGillis and was
directed by Michael Kahn.

Subject:        Mel's Hamlet

I thought members might enjoy this excerpt from a high school student's
paper comparing Nicol Williamson and Mel Gibson in the role of Hamlet:
"Despite his tendency to overact and somewhat limited emotional range,
Mel Gibson was a great Hamlet.  Portraying classic Mel heroes, he
brought together elements of Mad Max, the Lethal Weapon cop, and his
role as a nutty conspiracy theorist. ... Depicting Hamlet as insane was
probably risky and incorrect, but Gibson was convincingly irrational."

On the lighter side, here is a new Web service SHAKSPERians might find
useful:

http://www.tower.org/insult/

It delivers random "Elizabethan insults,"  a new one each time you click
in.

Enjoy.
