Subject: Cross Dressing in Videotaped Plays
Are there any videotapes of English Renaissance plays, Shakespearean or
not, that actually employ cross dressing in the production (as opposed
to changing the gender of a role)? E.g., I know that a Canadian
production of Shrew has a male actor cross dress as Sly's supposed wife
in the Induction. Are there any other examples available on tape?
