Comment: Re: SHK 18.0755 Wooster Hamlet
Bob Projansky notes "And it's not billed as "The Wooster Group's
Statement About Theatrical Art." It's billed as Hamlet by William
At least when I went, it was NOT billed as "Hamlet by William
Shakespeare." The program cover from the St. Ann's Warehouse production
has it as: "The Wooster Group: Hamlet."
The web site for the Public Theater bills the production as "The Wooster
Group's Hamlet," NOT "William Shakespeare's Hamlet."
I think this is a crucial difference. While the text is Shakespeare's,
in this case, the theatrical even is not.
