University of Delaware Press, 2007 - 425 strani
This is a collection of interviews of twenty-one actors from Shakespeare theaters and festivals across North America, from the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland to the Chicago Shakespeare Theatre and the Stratford Shakespeare Festival in Ontario. The interviews celebrate the variety in education, training, and approaches to acting conducted by recognized performance scholars. Thus, this book combines scholarly expertise with actors' insights to produce unique views on contemporary Shakespearean performances in the United States and Canada, and fills an important niche in performance criticism. Michael W. Shurgot is Professor of Humanities at South Puget Sound Community College.

Stran 13 - As for players — pardon me, right honourable and beloved, for so wronging this place and your patience with so base a subject — they play with princes and potentates, magistrates and ministers, nay, with God and religion, and all holy things, — nothing that is good, excellent, or holy can escape them, how then can this action ? " But this may suffice, that they are players ; they abuse...
Stran 363 - It is the cause, it is the cause, my soul. Let me not name it to you, you chaste stars! It is the cause. Yet I'll not shed her blood, Nor scar that whiter skin of hers than snow And smooth as monumental alabaster.
Stran 17 - Adventurers in that Plantation. At the said Lord Generall his leave taking of England his Native Countrey, and departure for Virginea, Febr. 21. 1609. By W. Crashaw Bachelar of Divinitie, and Preacher at the Temple.
Stran 13 - ... them altogether. But why are the Players enemies to this Plantation and doe abuse it? I will tell you the causes: First, for that they are so multiplied here, that one cannot liue by another, and they see that wee send of all trades to Virginea, but will send no Players, which if wee would doe, they that remaine would gaine the more at home. Secondly, as the diuell hates vs, because wee purpose not to suffer Heathens, and the Pope because we haue vowed to tolerate no Papists...
Stran 13 - Players, and they haue played with better things, and such as for which, if they speedily repent not, I dare say, vengeance waites for them. But let them play on ; they make men laugh on earth, but " Hee that sits in heaven laughes them to scorne ;" because like the flie, they so long play with the candle, till first it singe their wings, and at last bnrnes them altogether.
Stran 13 - Players : they abuse Virginea, but they are but Players : they disgrace it : true, but they are but Players, and they have played with better things, and such as for which, if they speedily repent not, I dare say Vengeance waites for them.
