365 Days of Shakespeare

That's right – the Bard in a year.

5. Five Mash-Ups that Just Might Work…

with 2 comments

1. Much Ado About the Shrew – because who wouldn’t want to see Kate and Beatrice go head-to-head?

2. Romeo and Timon of Verona – a bromantic comedy.

3. The Twelfth Tempest – Viola disguises herself as a boy to convince Prospero to stop making storms happen for fun.

4. All’s Well That Ends King Lear – based on what the audience is feeling during uncut productions with no intermission.

5. Richard VIII – it’s a complicated plot, but basically Richard ends up wooing Anne Bullen and gets beheaded by Henry while crying out for a horse.

Sorry for such a short entry today, but Adam and I are heading up to Staunton in about thirty minutes for his audition with the American Shakespeare Center! I know  he will be fantastic and I wish him all the break-a-leg in the world!

  1. Brilliant! Actually, I think Beatrice would take Kate quite handily enough. Re:#5, it’s “Boleyn”, unless I should be corrected and “Bullen” is the original spelling.

    • I agree. It’s usually “Boleyn”, but in my copy of The Yale Shakespeare they have her name spelled “Bullen”, so I just went with what was in front of me. I guess since Shakespeare had a zillion ways to spell his own name, he couldn’t be expected to spell anyone else’s correctly!
