Post Handshakes?
I've been assigned to do Dramaturgy for a production of J&H and one crucial thing is eluding me: How did men in the 19th century perform handshakes? Any information would be helpful.

Bump; I need some sort of response by Thursday. That's when the Dramaturgy is due.

This link mainly deals with handshakes between males and females in 19th century literature, but it may be a cue for when to use it in the show. It wasn't just for greeting or agreement, as you'll see by clicking here.
