Comment:        RE: SHK 12.0582 Seattle Shakespeare Company Query

Karen, the Seattle Shakespeare Company (http://www.seattleshakes.org/)
is definitely worth $18-22/ticket!  Their production of Hamlet was
brilliant (with the exception of one or two actors) and absolutely
captivated my high school students.  The theatre (housed near the Space
Needle) is intimate and gives the audience a sense of being part of the
action.  As an actor, I would love to perform in that space with that
company!

If you are interested in doing a little traveling while you are in the
area, the Tacoma Actor's Guild (http://www.tacomaactorsguild.org/) will
also perform Merry Wives.  Now, it appears that their run ends prior to
your arrival, but you may be able to catch one of the student matinees
on April 10-13.  As a little side note--the artistic director for the
Seattle Shakespeare Company, Stephanie Shine, was recently in TAG's
production of The Beauty Queen of Leenane.

Of course, the real show to see in Seattle from April 6-19 is Peter
Brook's Hamlet with Adrian Lester (http://www.hamletinseattle.com/).
We've had our tickets for awhile, so I don't know about current
availability, but it is worth a try.

There's a much clearer one a few lines later: "All this the world well
knows, yet none knows well"

NINTH ANNUAL CONFERENCE,
PHILADELPHIA, PA
NOVEMBER 15-18, 2001
"A SPACE ODYSSEY"

TOPIC:  We are proposing a panel of 5 people on the topic:  Theatrical
Spaces:  Staging Windows and Doors.

We invite papers (limit:  10 minutes or 5-6 pages) that examine the
literal staging or metaphorical use of windows and/or doors in early
modern and restoration drama.  'Windows' is understood to include the
use of the upper stage, balcony, or terrace; and 'Doors' includes
explicit stage directions referring to stage doors or traps. Possible
scenes for discussion might include the sewer scene or the advertisement
scene in _The Rover_; the window seduction scene in _Ram Alley_  or _The
Devil is an Ass_; or the closet scenes in _Epicoene, or the Silent
Woman_.   Papers need not depend on performance theory to explore this
staging issue.


By APRIL 6, PLEASE SEND THE FOLLOWING:
One-page abstracts INCLUDING talk title, presenter's name, complete
mailing address, institutional affiliation (if any), and email address.

Email submissions should be sent to both of the following:

Re: Othello in Aleppo

The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 12.0611  Wednesday, 14 March 2001

Subject:        Othello in Aleppo

Isaac Asimov in his Guide to Shakespeare remarks: "If Othello killed a
Turk in Aleppo, he was killing him in the midst of a city of Turks and
it is not likely he would have got away alive."  Asimov suggests that
Othello was originally a Moslem (when he did the Aleppo murder) who
converted to Christianity later in life.

Shakespeare mentions Aleppo twice, once in Othello (1603-4) and once in
Macbeth (1606).  But I guess many people know that.  Still the fact that
Shakespeare has Othello kill a Turk in Aleppo seems significant.
