The ten essays collected in Shakespearean Performance: New Studies are all in the field of Shakespearean performance studies. They represent the areas of stage history, performance structure, Shakespeare on film, the physical playhouse, the phenomenon of cross-dressing, and cultural history reflected in stage directions.

Corinne S. Abate writes on a significant missed opportunity for interpretative staging in the final scene of Measure for Measure. Ralph Berry gives an overview of recent interpretations of Hamlet on stage, with special emphasis on the presence (or absence) of Fortinbras in productions. Harry Keyishian addresses - and gives a primer on - the filming of Shakespeare, with special attention to films of Hamlet, films depicting Falstaff, and recent experimental films, notably Julie Taymor's Titus.

Russell Jackson comments, as an eye-witness and participant, on Kenneth Branagh's musical film version of Love's Labour's Lost. James C. Bulman gives an account of the gender and sexuality implications of an all-male production of Twelfth Night at the New Globe.

Jean E. Howard writes about the Henry VI-Richard III plays and their containing differing models of masculinity for the Elizabethan theatre and culture. Andrew Gurr writes about what we have learned about Elizabethan and modern staging through the experiment of the New Globe.

Cary M. Mazer looks at several recent stage productions and/or adaptations centring around the phenomenon of the play-within-the-play. Arthur Kinney writes about the stage directions involving bells in Macbeth and their connection to Elizabethan and Jacobean social history. Finally Milia Cozart Riggio examines the Olivier and Radford/ Pacino film versions of the Merchant of Venice.

Frank Occhiogrosso is Professor of English at Drew University.
