I believe that Tom Stoppard pioneered something like this with Hamlet. :-)


@Mike: Or www.reducedshakespeare.com ("Shtick Happens").

Our friend Nan Budinger had a pal who used to edit re-run TV series as they fell to her station's level of syndication. At her level, more commercials were added, so it was her responsibility to find three minutes to cut out to make room for local ads in shows such as "That Girl". She soon discovered that each episode of "That Girl" had about three minutes' worth of Marlo's fiancee, Donald. She found that if she just cut every scene that Donald was in, that would come to three minutes and the episode was ready for the local ads.
