The latest (October 11) issue of Variety lists films that are being
marketed at MIFED 99 in Milan. Included in the listing is Kenneth
Branagh's "Love's Labour's Lost", "done in the style of the great 30's
Hollywood musicals" and Julie Taymor's "Titus" (full title).

Also listed, "The King Is Alive", ". . . the story of a group of people
who stage a performance of "King Lear" when their bus breaks down in the
African desert. This will be the first Dogma 95 film to be made in
English. The listings give few details about the films.

Also, in the Fall 99 TDR, Richard Schechner interviews Julie Taymor
about a number of things, including the Titus film.
