Second-hand Arden II Titus Andronicus

Subject:        Second-hand Arden II Titus Andronicus

Again, answers to me by personal E-Mail (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
Thank you.

Does anybody have a paperback Arden II Titus Andronicus (edited by J.C.
Maxwell) in reasonable condition - preferably without handwritten notes
added by the user - that they no longer want?  I have every Arden II in
paperback apart from that one, and want to complete my collection, but
only second-hand hardbacks seem to be available on the Internet.

I would be willing to barter and offer an exchange.  I am based in the
UK, and would have difficulty getting money payments to people in other
countries (it would cost far more to have the currency exchanged than to
buy the book), but I would be willing to - for example - purchase a book
of similar value from an International Internet bookseller with my
Credit Card and have it sent to you as an exchange.

Bibliography Regarding Films Based on Stage Versions

Subject:        Bibliography Regarding Films Based on Stage Versions of
Shakespeare's Plays

I am writing a chapter on two films of Othello deriving from stage
versions of Shakespeare's play. These two films are: that by Stuart
Burge and John Dexter (1965) and that by Trevor Nunn (1990).  I would
appreciate it if someone suggested any books relating to films deriving
from stage performances of Shakespearean plays or any other relevant
books.

Thanking you,
Eleni Pilla.

Will I be the first to name Zoe Wanamaker?  See her as Emilia in the TV
Othello set in the American frontier.  I saw her first in the British TV
series Edge of Darkness playing a secret service officer keeping tabs on
the Local Cop played by Bob Peck.

Best wishes,

I recall seeing Carnovsky in a small theatre at UC Berkeley in the early
'60s doing a one-man show in which he performed Shylock and talked about
his relation to the character and the play.  The burden of the
performance, not surprisingly, was Shakespeare's ability to imagine
beyond the stereotype.  Does anyone have any information on this show?
I believe it was taken on tour rather than being a one-off.

Gods and Generals

I saw the trailer for Gods and Generals (2003), directed by Ronald F.
Maxwell, the other day and noticed a scene in a theater with an actor
looking like Edwin Booth doing Hamlet. Just a guess.

Speaking of Shakespeare
At THE NATIONAL ARTS CLUB

Upcoming Programs to Feature Actors
Henry Goodman, Simon Russell Beale, and Roger Rees

Over the last several months, The Shakespeare Guild and The National
Arts Club have co-hosted engaging conversations with such fascinating
personalities as actors F. Murray Abraham, Zoe Caldwell, and Bill Irwin,
and Theatre Communications Group executive Ben Cameron. We're now
pleased to announce our schedule for the next three programs in a series
that provides perspectives on a wide range of issues.

Each of these events will occur at 8:00 p.m. at The National Arts Club,
15 Gramercy Park South in New York City. The format is quite simple: a
chat   that begins with Guild president John F. Andrews and his guest,
and then opens up to questions from the audience. The festivities
conclude with a light reception in the Club's beautiful lounge. To
inquire about dinner reservations, or to ask for further details, call
the National Arts Club at (212) 475-3424, or reply to this announcement
with a brief message to The Shakespeare Guild.

These programs are free of charge to members of the Guild or the NAC.
For non-members there is a $10 admission fee, can be paid, if you wish,
with a credit card.

Monday, January 13 - Henry Goodman

Henry Goodman is playing the title role, and co-starring with Brian
Bedford, in the Roundabout Theatre production of Tartuffe. He won the
Olivier Award for his portrayal of Shylock in a celebrated Merchant of
Venice at the Royal National Theatre, and that performance has been
shared with American audiences by way of a PBS television rendering on
ExxonMobil Masterpiece Theatre.

Monday, February 24 - Simon Russell Beale

Simon Russell Beale, who played the Second Gravedigger in Kenneth
Branagh's film of Hamlet, is now regarded by many as a great Dane in his
own right.The protagonist he gave us in a Royal National Theatre
production came to the Brooklyn Academy of Music and played to sold-out
houses. He'll soon return to BAM in a Twelfth Night directed by Sam
Mendes.

Monday, March 31 - Roger Rees

Roger Rees burst into stardom in the title part of the Royal Shakespeare
Company's Nicholas Nickleby, for which he earned both an Olivier and a
Tony. He went on to create the leading roles in the London productions
of two Stoppard classics, The Real Thing and Hapgood. On Broadway he's
starred in Indiscretions, The Rehearsal, and Uncle Vanya, and he
currently garnering accolades in A Man of No Importance at Lincoln
Center Theatre. His television appearances have included memorable
moments in hits like Cheers and The West Wing.
