Comment:        Re: SHK 11.2354 Shakespeare's Contemporaries on CD

My five:

Jonson, The Alchemist
Webster, The White Devil
Tourneur/Middleton, The Revenger's Tragedy
Ford, Tis Pity She's a Whore
Marlowe, Tamburlaine

Not a surprising list, I know; but though they are clearly among the
best of their kind, I do not believe that they have ever been
commercially recorded in their entireties on either audio or video.
(Archival videotapes may exist in one theatrical library or another; and
the National Sound Archives in London are a treasure-trove of
unsuspected material; but those are not the easiest sources to access.)
