But! I have been put in my place elsewhere for noticing this absolutely fundamental condition of staging Shakespeare, that is all about the crotch shots. Because, you see, I am too dumb to have noticed that back in the Shakespeare's days female characters were played by men or boys. Now that women play women you have to have crotch shots.
So now I understand the way I'm supposed to see Lear naked and raving on the storm battered heath. Thank you,
