Sitting Through Shakespeare

Ann Again... and again
Rob was terrific as Lepidus in Shakespeare's Antony & Cleopatra.  What a great way for him to spend his birthday - on stage, performing Shakespeare.  Falling in love with an actor is one thing, falling for a guy who loves Shakespeare, and being someone who wants to support him by sitting through the classic works of Shakespeare is another.

The stories I get.  There's love, war, misunderstandings and death.  There's always a death, or two, or three, or... But it's the classic use of the English language where I really need to prepare myself.  And once I'm in the rhythm of the words, it's good.  I'm on board and enjoying why he did that to him then turned around and said that to her (which is really a 'him') and everyone drinks or gets into an argument or dies.  (Sometimes all three.)

It's Shakespeare.  Rob loves it, I love him and I will do what I can to educate myself to make the next play easier.  I mean hey, if our girls can make it through, so can I!

How are you with Shakespeare?  Do you enjoy it?  Or, do you run for the hills at the mention of his name?

  2. I actually love Shakespeare! We have a Shakespeare in the park every summer, and I never miss it. My son is just 10, but I hope to introduce him to some of Shakespeare's works soon. :)

  3. I don't mind Shakespeare, as long as they jazz up the performance with great costumes, lights, music, etc.

    1. Music definitely helps. This production was very loud - the actors really projected - which helped keep me awake! ;->

      Thanks for stopping by Jenna!
