Subject:        Query on Shakespeare in Japan

I hope someone on the list can help me with this problem.

When I attended the World Shakespeare Congress in Japan in 1991, I went
to a Theatre Museum in Tokyo. The front of the building was laid out
like the Archer/Godfrey reconstruction of the Fortune playhouse with a
full stage and stage posts as a porch and entrance stairs into the
building on either side. The building was originally built, as I recall,
in the 1920s and originally housed a Shakespeare organization (and may
still house such an organization on the upper floors.) Does anyone know
anything about this? Just getting the correct name would help me look it
up. I have misplaced my brochure on it and of course I need the
information within the next two weeks so I can't just wait for my
brochure to resurface. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
