Comment:        SHK 11.1121 Re: Comedy of Errors -- Web Sites

There is a video of Comedy of Errors available from the RSC shop.  The
few sketchy details from their online catalog
(http://www.stratford.co.uk/rsc/home.html) are that it stars Michael
Williams and Judi Dench, it runs for two hours and ten minutes, and
sells for 10 pounds, 99 p.

It is a television production, directed by Trevor Nunn, based on his
staging at Stratford and London.  It is very enjoyable without actually
being good.  Nunn turned it into something of a musical.

It is available in the PAL format only, and will not play on VCRs in the
U.S. and Canada.  This posting should not by any means be construed as a
subtle criticism of Tanya Gough's reply about videos available for
Comedy.  There is no reason she should know about videos not available
in North America.

all the best,
Mike Jensen
