  • General Editor's Introduction
    • Abstract: "What would Pascale do'" Pascale Aebischer is an effective lodestar for any Shakespeare scholar or journal editor, and therefore a doubly great one for the new General Editor of Shakespeare Bulletin. She's been an inspiring leader in our field, and I'm hoping we'll see even more of her discipline-defining work out there now that her time at the helm of SB has drawn to a close.Throughout the editorial process that resulted in this, my first issue as General Editor, I have had many occasions not only to wonder in a rhetorical way what Pascale would do but also to seek her actual advice. Since Pascale is a generous scholar and a good friend, I shouldn't be surprised that she set me up to succeed: it's what she does. ... Read More

  • Metatheatre and Early Modern Drama
    • Abstract: John Marstonhow could you do this to us' We are metafuckedAlmost sixty years after Lionel Abel coined the term in 1960, "meta-theatre" remains a stock concept for researchers, teachers, and practitioners of drama produced in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth century, and yet relatively little work has been done to theorize and historicize the forms and functions of early modern metatheatre since the 1980s. In order to re-assess the place of metatheatre in early modern drama studies, this special issue brings together six articles and a review essay. In the introduction that follows, we offer a critique of the field since its inception, argue for its relevance to recent scholarly developments, and explain how ... Read More

  • Are Shakespeare's plays always metatheatrical'
    • Abstract: The ambiguity of the term "metatheatre" derives in part from its text of origin, Lionel Abel's 1963 book of the same name. By his own admission, Abel's use of the term was "loose and sometimes erratic" (v). If we use the term in its broadest sense—to describe any theater that in some way draws attention to its own artifice—it becomes evident that early modern drama is always "metatheatrical" to some extent: these plays are designed never entirely to lose sight of the material realities of their performance, or of the physical co-presence of their audiences. If this is the case, how useful is the term "metatheatre"' Indeed, are Shakespeare's plays always metatheatrical' This article unpicks some of the conflicting ... Read More

  • As If
    • Abstract: A couple of years ago I travelled from Canterbury to Nottingham to see Propeller's Pocket Dream. This is, as the company's publicity describes it, "a sixty-minute version of A Midsummer Night's Dream, especially devised for young audiences," one that aimed to "create a relaxed and engaging atmosphere… as well as encouraging the young audience to give an open and uninhibited response." As I am currently engaged in research into the increasingly prevalent phenomenon of Relaxed Performance, I was naturally interested to see how this might work. Relaxed Performance (or RP), for those unfamiliar with the term, is something that has begun to be offered by many theaters in the UK in recent years; designed primarily though ... Read More

  • All 'Metatheatre' is Not Created Equal: The Knight of the Burning Pestle,
           A Midsummer Night's Dream, and the Navigation of the Spectrum of Dramatic
           Representation
    • Abstract: … and now you call your play The London Merchant. Down with your title, boy, down with your title!Marry, our play is The Most Lamentable Comedy and Most Cruel Death of Pyramus and Thisbe.Both Francis Beaumont's The Knight of the Burning Pestle (1607) and Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream (c. 1595) use the comic presentation of a play as a central element in their overall dramatic plots, but to meaningfully different ends. Beaumont's play stages an intruding audience that frames and shapes the play's narrative and places one of its own members in a starring role, while Shakespeare's "rude mechanicals" serve as a low comic subplot through the preparation of their own play that they in turn present to the ...

  • Matter-Theatre: Construction in Cymbeline
    • Abstract: Five times in Cymbeline, a character asks, "what's the matter'" (1.1.3).1 This question conspicuously opens up various meanings of "matter" in the play, and—in the context of this special issue—invites reflection on the role of "matter" in metatheatre. The question appears as early as the third line (fifth in the Folio), part of the exposition in which two gentlemen discuss Imogen's engagement. The term then continues to feature throughout the play, both explicitly, by verbal reference, as well as implicitly, by allusion, echo, and association. The word "matter" draws on both rhetoric and early modern "science" from technology to anatomy; it has resonance in early modern England through its legal applications (the ... Read More

  • Reading Metatheatre
    • Abstract: Is it possible to read metatheatre' If so, to what extent was metatheatre part of the playreading experience in early modern England' Focusing on "paratexts" to a range of plays printed in England in the early seventeenth century, from printed character lists to manuscript marginalia, this article investigates implied and actual readers' responses to the self-reflexive qualities of playbooks, whether or not those qualities are intentional. In doing so, it argues that early modern printed playbooks prompted "performative" reading practices through which readers actively reflected on the relationship between the real- and play-worlds, and enacted their own roles in the production of metatheatre. While Stephen Purcell ... Read More

           Tempest
    • Abstract: Lysimachus: … O, you have heard something of my power and so stand aloof for more serious wooing. But I protest to thee, pretty one, my authority shall not see thee, or else look friendly upon thee. Come, bring me to some private place: come, come.In this speech from Pericles, Lysimachus demands that Marina stops what he is determined to read as playing hard to get, and submit to his sexual desire for her. The line "my authority shall not see thee, or else look friendly on thee" has been glossed by editors as either an implicit or an overt threat.1 But his "authority" here is given an odd intentionality, suggesting that Lysimachus is already distancing himself from the acts he will soon be made ashamed to have ...

  • Modernizing Metatheatre in the RSC's A Mad World My Masters
    • Abstract: Midway through Sean Foley's 2013 RSC production of Thomas Middleton's A Mad World My Masters, Penitent Brothel (John Hopkins) utters what is admittedly, a pretty awful pun. Masquerading as a doctor, Penitent tends to Truly Kidman (Sarah Ridgeway), a courtesan who feigns illness to dupe the wealthy old knight, Sir Bounteous Peersucker (Ian Redford). Penitent prescribes a preposterously elaborate and expensive cure, worrying Peersucker, who implores Penitent to show "patience." Penitent replies, "I cannot be patient and physician too" (46). Turning to the audience, he quips, "Thomas Middleton, 1605." Of this moment, Emma Smith observed "That Middleton should be explicitly credited with one of the lamer jokes in an ... Read More

  • Seattle Shakespeare Company 2016–2017 Season
    • Abstract: Tommer Peterson's initial set for SSC's The Winter's Tale was wonderfully inviting. In the darkened theater, a small table stood stage left on which rested an hour glass, lit softly from above to create a sense of interior warmth on a winter night. Amid three pillars of different heights standing stage right, center, and left, all embroidered with heavy brocaded cloth of paisley and floral designs, the actors gradually emerged to take their places for the opening scene accompanied by gentle guitar sounds. As more lights came on to reveal chairs and small pedestals around the stage, the scene evoked a pleasant evening in a wealthy contemporary kingdom.Director Sheila Daniels created surprising ambiguity about the ...

  • Hamlet (review)
    • Abstract: What does single-gender casting do for plays and their audiences' In a Shakespeare Unlimited podcast published by the Folger Shakespeare Library on June 27, 2017, Barbara Bogaev asked Phyllida Lloyd, the director of a trilogy of all-female Shakespeare productions in London, what the effect and power of such casting is for Shakespeare audiences today. Lloyd answered that "what's thrilling about it, whether it's all men, or all women, is that you start seeing the shapes, […] hearing new parts of the text." Such casting also offers a "disruption" of expectations about gender, she added. Her own decision to do Shakespeare with an all-female cast was inspired by a generative anger at how few theater jobs were available ... Read More

  • Macbeth (review)
    • Abstract: The first time I saw Macbeth by the Ninagawa Company was on an old VHS recorder in the performance archives at Shakespeare's Globe. In spite of the grainy images and almost unintelligible soundtrack, I was completely transfixed. It was the first time I had seen such an arresting display of aesthetic beauty and dramatic intensity, combining the visual sensations of Victorian stage spectacle with the stylized beauty of kabuki theatre. Ninagawa's Macbeth premiered in Japan in 1980 and first came to the United Kingdom in 1985 when it was staged at the Edinburgh Festival alongside Euripides's Medea. Theatre impresario Thelma Holt was in the audience for this seminal performance and, struck by Ninagawa's "visual ... Read More

  • Macbeth (review)
    • Abstract: Liesl Tommy, who emigrated to the United States from South Africa when she was fifteen, set her production of Macbeth in an imaginary, largely Muslim country in Africa. The witches, two men and a woman, were agents of an organization called the UIA (i.e., the CIA). As the production began, the woman and one of the men were wearing black sunglasses and black suits with small American flags in their lapels. The other man was dressed in fatigues and carried what appeared to be an AK-47. As the witches finished their scene, the battle broke out. ThreeFig 7Jesse J.

  • The Woman in the Moon (review)
    • Abstract: In September 2014, at the Rose Theatre on Bankside, a new theatre company called The Dolphin's Back—led by the actor and director James Wallace and dedicated, in its own words, to "rescuing forgotten plays [and] playwrights"—staged the first professional production of John Lyly's The Woman in the Moon (c. 1588) in over 400 years. Three years later, towards the end of a series of events in association with the AHRC-funded Before Shakespeare project, Globe Education hosted a three-performance revival of the production in the candlelit Sam Wanamaker Playhouse. Wallace returned as director, but the majority of the cast was new to this revival. Many, however, were veterans of Globe Education's Read Not Dead series of ... Read More

  • The Taming of the Shrew (review)
    • Abstract: Colorado Shakespeare Festival, one of the oldest festivals of its kind in the United States, celebrated its sixtieth season this past summer. The Taming of the Shrew was chosen along with Hamlet and Julius Caesar to celebrate the Festival's past by reimagining their 1958 season. Added to these three plays were an excellent production of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead (performed in repertory with the cast of Hamlet) and an Original Practices production of Henry VI, Part 3.The Festival opened with a spirited swing-era production of The Taming of the Shrew in the outdoor theater. Under the vibrant direction of Christopher DuVal and Ava Kostia, Shakespeare's controversial farce, long regarded by some as ... Read More

    • Abstract: In his new production of The Merchant of Venice, director Robert Cuccioli offered an unusually ensemble-based approach to a play that is so often about a single character, creating an intelligent, complex production. Rather than focusing solely on the most dominant characters, Shylock and Portia, Cuccioli also foregrounded the relationships between Antonio and Bassanio and between Jessica and Lorenzo, thereby creating a rich, multi-layered presentation that dealt with love, money, power, and the bonds that relationships forge.This production was set in affluent 1910 Venice. Orchestral music filled the air as the play opened. The set consisted of a large, low, circular platform on a carousel mounting at stage right. ... Read More

  • King Richard II (review)
    • Abstract: The majestic inaugural play of Shakespeare's second tetralogy of histories resonates deeply with Shakespeare's career-long obsession with identity and role-playing, particularly in the figure of a king. Erica Schmidt's staging of King Richard II for the Old Globe vividly communicated this while maintaining Shakespeare's uneasy ambivalence about royal figures and the nature of power in Richard II. Shakespeare often packages these themes in plays in which fierce battles, raucous storms, and base criminality take center stage, but Richard II is largely contemplative. Schmidt and actor Robert Sean Leonard, however, were both drawn to the beauty of the language, which lends it a ceremonial tone. Plays of this kind are a ... Read More

  • The Fair Maid of the Exchange (review)
    • Abstract: When the advertisement for a show claims that it has not been performed in over 400 years, one must go, I suppose. As part of its Renaissance season, the American Shakespeare Center (ASC) at Blackfriars Playhouse in Staunton, Virginia, threw together a performance of 1607's The Fair Maid of the Exchange, probably written by Thomas Heywood. I say "threw together" out of sheer admiration for the actors involved in the ASC "Renaissance Season," which consists of putting on five plays over the season (running simultaneously) within the limitations of thirty hours' rehearsal for each play. The idea, of course, is to recreate as much as possible the rehearsal conditions of the early modern period. The result is an ... Read More

           DiGangi (review)
    • Abstract: Interest in the history of emotions and embodied experience has played an important role in the study of Shakespeare for at least the last two decades: as several monographs and edited collections have shown, an understanding of feeling as deeply influenced by the interplay of humors, spirits, and passions shaped the emotional world of Shakespeare and his contemporaries. While a good deal of this work on the history of emotions in the early modern period has been informed by the parallel rise of affect theory from the 1990s until today, the links between the two fields, and indeed the relevance of affect theory to sixteenth- and seventeenth-century thinking, have typically been implicit rather than overt.The two ...
