Comment:        Re: SHK 16.0963 Marlowe and Mahomet

When I directed Tamburlaine the Great, Part II in 2003 at the American
Theatre of Actors in New York City, I did it without cuts, and included
the Koran-burning scene, which is one of Marlowe's most powerful
theatrical moments.  In my upcoming article, "Tamurlaine the Great, Part
II as Morality Play," I argue against the idea that there is any
anti-Christian sentiment in this scene.  The article will appear later
this year in the 2005 issue of The Journal of Religion and Theatre,
which is available online at http://www.rtjournal.org/.
