>A Cuban version of The Tempest is now playing in Toronto.

Is this the version in which Prospero refuses to hand over Ferdinand to
his father at the end of the play, on the grounds that Milan is a vile
dictatorship whereas his island has liberty and justice for all?

It was heartening to learn that Norman J. Myers prefaces his astonishing
course with the slogan  'This warning is issued to assure you that no
deliberate attempt to make you uncomfortable is being made'.  What a
good idea. Surely it's time for industrial-strength pieties of that
order to be emblazoned on suitable works of Shakespearean criticism?
Harold Bloom's effusions come, unbidden, to mind.

I want to thank all who replied, by e-mail and letter, to my request for
information about a Dench/Hopkins A&C videotape.

To those who have seen the staging, or any other productions of this
great play, and can remember any moments in which the acting illuminated
Shakespeare's text, I will be grateful if you will share them.

One more thing: does anyone know of anything new about what Shakespeare
would have known about Cleopatra's Egypt?

Again, thanks,
Marvin

What on earth is 'towing the line'? Is it something that 'morays' do?

Marowitz Hamlet

Has anyone seen or had recent experiences with performances of this
short experimental version of HAMLET ? I was involved in the early 70's
in a production at the University of Georgia and remember it fondly and
am considering producing it.
