Subject: 16.0388 Tempest on Film
Comment: RE: SHK 16.0388 Tempest on Film
"McDermott goes on to credit Taymor with a Broadway production of The
Tempest with Patrick Stewart, but this is mistaken. Patrick Stewart did
appear on Broadway in a Tempest directed by George C. Wolfe, but Taymor
had nothing to do with this production."
M. Yawney is absolutely right, of course-I conflated my memory of the
production, with its Bunraku puppets and stilt-walking figures, with
Taymor's name and her designs for "The Lion King." Barbara Pollitt
designed the masks and puppets for Wolfe's production.
Sorry about that.
