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 
Shakespeare."

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.
