Is the recording worth watching? I thought that the intensity of the live performance may have been lost through the recording. It lacks the intimacy, doesn’t it? But I might give it a shot though.

I think they are really two different animals, at least based on my viewing of the plan at the last week of August. The play was very intense, but the filmed version is shoutier and because it uses film editing techniques, very focused on the up-close aspect of the play. Depending on where you sat in the theater, you may see things in the filmed version that you wouldn’t have seen while in the theater. I also think the second half of act IV is probably better in the filmed version than in any of the live versions I saw.

Not sure what that is — you can get it through the Digital Theatre website, or if you have an academic account somewhere, you can see if your institution is a subscriber to Digital Theatre Plus.

aha. No, I think you have to get it through Digital Theatre (they are the only outlet).
