To troll, or not to troll? Whether it is nobler on the board to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous frontmen, or to post arms against a Sea Of Tunes and by opposing end them?
I just posted some stuff about the bard in the MiC thread and, rather than clog that up any more than is necessary, thought it would be better to have a thread.
What's your favourite play? Any favourite speeches? Did you really resent learning A Midsummer Nights Dream in school? Ever acted in any Shakespeare? Any good productions you saw? Ever been to The Globe?
Probably my favourite speech, or at least my favourite right now. Falstaff's sack speech from Hal part II. Roger Allam is fantastic here, and Falstaff is such amazing writing on Shakes' part.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vpGMXRO1xo8
I am sending some emails and then I am going to watch Orson Welles' Chimes Of Midnight, possibly my favourite Shakespeare film? Although I want to see his Macbeth, the first Shakespeare play I really loved.
At the moment I'm rehearsing Much Ado About Nothing and the more I think and talk and watch Shakespeare the better I'll do. I have the David Tennant 2001 radio play on pretty much constant repeat to get my lines. Did anyone see the Joss Whedon version?
The more youtubes in this thread the better btw
