Comment:        Re: SHK 11.1970 New Globe Book?

Jennifer,

I read the book a year and a bit ago.  I did not keep it, so I can't
refer to it, but if you have any questions, and my memory is up to it,
I'll be happy to answer.  You may wish to take that off list.  I hope
someone can offer to do better for you than that.

It is an interesting book for content, but not a ton of fun to read.  My
overall impression is that it was a bit early in the Globe's life to
have a book evaluating the impact of the Globe in performance, but that
is an impression from someone mostly working outside the Globe Theatre.
It may be different for a Globe worker.  The impact, really the lack of
impact, of boys playing girls playing boys overturns a lot of the ink
that has been spilled in gender studies, as I suspected it would, but it
is so quickly mentioned that anyone, Steven Orgel for example, who
thinks this is very significant can easily dismiss Kiernan's comments.
That would be a shame because she challenges the assumptions, but since
she doesn't try to argue the case she can only convert the choir.

Let's hope someone with a copy will also contact you.

All the best,
Mike Jensen

In response to Jennifer Miller's request, here is some information from
the BookData Premier-CD (BooKFind).  I don't seem to have any
information about a US paperback.
