Comment:        Re: SHK 16.1320 Censorship

This is just typical behavior from the great American public who have
fostered the dumbing down of the America.  Though Titus is a bloody play
it is an education in behavior as what revenge can do to the mind and
the heart of the human being. It is a very exciting and poetic work and
I always felt should have received more attention.  But I didn't help
having the movie made, which was a disaster and could turn any students
of Shakespeare. Off.  It was just a case of having too much money and
turned the film in to a confusion of blood and gore.  What's most
disappointing was here was a chance to do a great work and they screwed
it up. As for parks and rec. of Lansing,  they are just doing their
duty, keeping the American public dumb as donuts.

List members may be interested to know that the City of Lansing has
relented and Heywood's production of Titus Andronicus will go on after
all.  City officials are framing the incident not as censorship but as a
failure to go through proper channels to obtain a permit.
