From Peter Peasgood:
. . . I enclose some photographs of The Wunder Kaberett
also our Commedia D'ell Arte show. They both operate
on the same system as Die Putzfrau Geht Nach Hollywood
you saw in Preetz 2000 using horizontal rods through a long slot
in the backcloth.
You may be pleased that we have been invited to perform at Preetz
in 2002 with our English Harlequinade, Escape from Covent
Garden, a robust production by Roy Adams and augmented by
We use Pollock, Webb, and other sheets and it is essentially Victorian
and totally in Rhyme.
|An anachronism is that I have Joey Grimaldi in his 1820 Union Jack
costume, purists may complain since he retired in 1822 and died in1838
one year after Victoria succeeded the throne. We have also the Punch
printing house and the Judy printing house in one scene totally out of
scale with the total time elapse. We are the only company to perform
in a reasonable production w3hich gives a very good idea of what
the original was like and so I feel justified in a little distortion. .
