September 19, 2011

  • Moving right along here...Today I'm going to post my text on Titus Andronicus. We've started reading A Comedy of Errors. After that comes Love's Labour's Lost and finally after that, one that most people have heard of, seen or actually read, A Midsummer Night's Dream. And then! One of the biggies – Romeo and Juliet. So patience out there, Shakespeare lovers, progress is slow but steady.
  • Shakespeare sightings –
    • In the old “Black Adder” series, season 3, episode “Sense and Senility”, jokes about Macbeth, Hamlet and Julius Caesar. One of the funniest episodes so far.
    • In Dagens Nyheter a supplement about the fall season in theater:
      • “Romeo and Juliet” at the Royal Dramatic Theater – to see or not to see...?
      • “Romeo and Juliet the Musical” - see last week's report
      • “King Lear” at the 123 Schtunk theater – would like to see this one
      • “Othello” in Dalarna
      • “Romeo and Juliet” in Uppsala
  • Now reading aloud with Hal: A Comedy of Errors.
  • Now reading: Contested Will by James Shapiro
  • Text posted: The Nastiness of Lucius or How the Hero Causes All the Bad Stuff in Titus Andronicus
