Comment:        Re: SHK 14.0716 Re: The Public Theater's AS YOU LIKE IT

A few years back, at the first New York Fringe Festival a Canadian group
brought in a production of As You Like It with only 4 actors.

That production surprised me with its clarity and effectiveness. While
the trend toward small cast Shakespeare (Measure with 5 actors,
Cymbeline with 6, etc.) began due to economics, it has actually led to
some interesting productions highlighting the structure of the plays,
since parallels and contrasts of situation and character read so
strongly in this sort of production.

>Well, partially. Is "hip-hop" USA or "youf" speak?

Both, in fact.

Of course, this sort of thing is at least as old as the several jazz
versions (I know of at least four) of "The Mikado".  Amusingly enough,
the first of these appears to have been "The Jazz Mikado", presented in
Berlin (!) in 1927, so you can't blame the USA for everything.  (Lest
this seem too bizarre, I should remark that, although Gilbert and
Sullivan rarely travel well outside the Anglophone world, "The Mikado"
in German has always been an exception.)

Comment:        Re: SHK 14.0720 R2 at Middle Temple Hall ticket available

When I enquired a week ago they had seats for most performances - having
been 'sold out'  two months ago. I suspect it's a case of block bookings
to US tour operators not being taken up(?)

Comment:        RE: SHK 14.0690 Re: Love's Labour's Wonne

Thanks for reminding me Peter.

But I think the general point still stands.  We don't have the play, and
in the absence of any evidence that another of Shakespeare's plays was
also called 'Love's Labours Wonne' then we don't know what the play
contained.  From that point of view it occupies the same kind of
position as the Ur Hamlet, about whose contents we can only guess at.

Cheers,
John Drakakis
