The Shakespeare at Stratford series is excellent. For those who wish to
deny themselves the opportunity to study the performance history of a
play in a single theatre over a defined period of time, there are of
course other series which do not restrict themselves either to Stratford
or Britain - namely, MUP's Shakespeare in Performance (which I will
shortly be contributing to) and CUP's Shakespeare in Production. Writing
about performance history is not as easy as it looks, which makes these
volumes (to me) all the more impressive. I look forward to David
Lindley's Tempest.

Peter Holland writes: I wouldn't expect him to appreciate why some of us
want to know even about bad productions but surely he can comprehend
that a series that does what it announces it will do is far preferable
to one that does something entirely different.

I too love the logic. It has kept me amused for days. My father taught
me as a child that there is sometimes more to learn from a bad
production, and I for one wonder why more research isn't done on
theatrical failures. I would have loved to have had the series to
consult when I wading through all the archives at the Shakespeare
Centre. Oh, dear, will the Centre have to change its name?????

In the October 1966 issue of Playboy, there is a "photographic satire"
of some lines from various plays.  (The lines are juxtaposed with photos
of people in various stages of undress to produce comic readings of the
lines.)  The piece is called "The Bawdy Bard" and may be found on pp.
135-141.

Comment:        Re: SHK 14.0441 Shakespeare Pop

On Saturday, March 1, I ran across an episode of Mystery Science Theater
3000 on Comedy Central that was "reviewing" a German  production of
Hamlet (I think it was German) starring Maxamillion Schell. I only
caught the last fifteen minutes or so, but it was pretty great. The
production left out Fortinbras, so the MST3K folk had a bit about that
at the end of the show.  For those of you who haven't seen the show,
MST3K is a show in which a futuristic guy on a spaceship and two robots
watch old B movies and have a running commentary throughout, making fun
of them. It can be pretty bad sometimes, but generally, I find it
entertaining. The worst part is watching the movie! (I had thought that
most of the time they used old horror films, but I guess anything is up
for grabs if they're using Hamlet.)

Cheers,
Marcia Eppich-Harris

Subject:        Sexspeare Review; Hotel O Part Two out

Based on the covers and the credited stars on the front cover, I thought
this might be another Live Nude Shakespeare. It isn't.  It's actually
one of the more inventive Shakespeare porns to have come along.  The
film begins with Shakespeare's twenty-fourth direct descendent, William
Sexspeare, who explains how Shakespeare had to change his name form
Sexspeare to Shakespeare.  Sexspeare appears before and after each of
five sex scenes, including the gravedigger's scene from Hamlet, the
scene with Titania and Bottom in her bower in MND, the balcony scene
from R and J, the sleepwalking scene from Macbeth, and the first witches
scene from Macbeth (with just two of the witches).  The dialogue mixes
made up dialogue with lines from the plays, most of which are given a
bawdy (re)interpretation.

Hotel O Part Two has also been released recently (I was not involved),
and Shakespeare again appears as a character.

Measure for Measure. Or, As You Like It.
By NADINE BROZAN

Of all the qualities that can be ascribed to a given apartment or house,
square footage ought to be among the most straightforward. Like a mirror
or a camera, it is safe to assume, a tape measure does not deceive,
leaving little reason to debate the number of square feet a residence
contains.

The Master's Disciple as a Barefoot Hamlet
By VALERIE GLADSTONE

LONDON

THE dancer Adam Cooper was rehearsing "Sea of Troubles," Kenneth
MacMillan's little-known ballet masterpiece that was inspired by
Shakespeare's "Hamlet," in the bright, spacious studios of the English
National Ballet here recently. Soon he joined the other dancers in a
turbulent sequence: they rolled on the floor, entwined in one another's
limbs, until the men extricated themselves and lifted the women over
their heads, as if trying to rescue them. Even in a navy blue sweatshirt
and sweatpants, he looked princely.

Speaking of Blackfriars.....

I have a question.  In Nicholas Breton's writing he often would sign
"from my chamber at Black Fryers"  My assumption is that he does not
mean the theatre or the location of the Gate House purchased by
Shakespeare and others in 1613.

Can anyone shed light on the place Breton is referencing?

Many thanks.
