the opportunity to bring more Shakespeare into my life and to meet people who enjoy the work and would like to experience and discuss it! We could attend Ashland plays and Shakespeare in the Parks as well as get together to watch DVD's of performances! (perhaps compare different versions, Laurence Olivier with ...) "The play's the thing!" also talk about the life and times.
The first that comes to mind is "As You Like It", probably because of the incredible performance of Touchstone that I had the good fortune to experience in Ashland many years ago. I also like "Much Ado About Nothing" (film with Emma Thompson, Kenneth Branagh and a terrific job on the comic relief!) But then there's "Richard III" and "Hamlet," "Julius Caesar" ... A favorite? "Help!"
Looking to meet new people and enjoy the beauty of language together.
