Last night, Tim3P0 and I went to the new Guthrie Theater (which is awesome, btw) to see Shakespeare’s The Two Gentleman of Verona, staged as though it were a 50s sitcom taping, complete with vintage cameras (feeding live video to screens on either side of the stage) and a doo-wop band singing during scene breaks. It was very fun.
I love it when people do creative things with Shakespeare.
So here’s the deal. Tell me what work (classic or otherwise–it could be an ’80s cartoon show, for all I care) you would like to see (or have seen, for that matter) set in what era/aesthetic. (Or tell me that you prefer your Shakespeare with puffy pants and elizabethan collars, thank you very much.)
