Shakespeare, 400 years on #BriFri — 8 Comments

  1. There is a Shakespeare festival in downtown Tallahassee Florida every year. Students from FSU provide the acting chops and it’s always excellent. I had been taking my son Tristan since he was 9 years old. It’s always a good time.

    I like what your sister-in-law did, sounds entertaining,

  2. I kind of hate Shakespeare. That said I was in NYC and saw the musical, ‘Something Rotten’ which I loved. It was funny and poked fun or the Bard. I am sure in a year or less it will be a road show.

    • The Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade last year had a performance by the Something Rotten cast and I laughed all the way through. I’d love to see that one!

  3. I once read King John because it’s the one nobody ever reads. There’s kind of a good reason for that. (Still haven’t read Timon of Athens or Two Gentlemen of Verona…hm, maybe I should do a reading project titled “Shakespeare plays nobody likes.”)

    This week I only have a beginning to contribute–I’m participating in a readalong of Spenser’s Faerie Queene. I’m almost done with Book I and will post about progress every Monday.

    • Looking forward to your Faerie Queen project. And, your unloved Shakespeare plays project would be fun, too!

  4. I shared this assemblage of awesome British talents sharing their skills on the ‘to be or not to be’ monologue from Hamlet. Pretty hilarious! My son’s old high school drama teacher used to adapt Shakespeare for their fall play every year.
    They did the Taming of the Shrew as a western, The Merry Wives of Windsor in the swinging 60’s (I worked on costumes which was a total blast!) Julius Caesar was done as a Chicago mobster tale with my boyo playing Brutus.

    Here’s my Shakespeare 400 postt
