A similar thing could probably be said about Richard France's THEATRE OF ORSON WELLES, which I finally managed to find a copy of yesterday at one of the local universities. I've only browsed it for an hour or so, but it looks like there is a lot of good discussion about the ideological aspects of each of the Mercury's theatre productions of the late 30's. However, France's book was written in 1977, so I'm sure it could use a newer edition, which I'm surprised he has never done. Also, it's a short book - only about 200 pages - and covers only up to the "Five Kings" production of 1940. All of Welles' subsequent theatre adventures, including "Around The World", the Salt Lake City "Macbeth", "The Blessed and the Damned", "Moby Dick Rehearsed", "King Lear", the Welles/Olivier "Rhinocerous", and others, are left out. This is another area of Welles' career that, like the radio works, could use some more in-depth illumination. As Rosenbaum points out in the interview, Simon Callow would be the man to do it, since he knows everyone in the English theatre. Maybe we will get some of this material from his next Welles book - if it ever comes out, that is.
