If four post-war working class boys from a shabby port city with no university education or even any formal musical training, dealing with broken homes, chronic iliness, poverty etc, could start a band that set off a global cultural revolution, then a glovemaker's son growing up in a rural town can write uniquely brilliant plays that revolutionized the English language.

Unless someone has evidence that Prince Charles (or Princess Margaret) secretly wrote all the Beatles' songs.

Sonnet 29
When, in disgrace with fortune and men’s eyes,
I all alone beweep my outcast state,
And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries,
And look upon myself and curse my fate,
Wishing me like to one more rich in hope,
Featured like him, like him with friends possessed,
Desiring this man’s art and that man’s scope,
With what I most enjoy contented least;

It features some hilarious physical comedy and really draws the audience in. The additional text is thoughtfully crafted: it gives the character Hero more of a voice and more force without being jarring or preachy. Great show! #Shakespeare

The Scottish Play. The Bard’s Play. Macbeth is surrounded by superstition and fear of the ‘curse’ – uttering the play’s name aloud in a #theatre causes bad luck. But where did this superstition come from?"

Heading to this event. You may be able to stream it. Few books are more celebrated than Shakespeare’s First Folio. Published in 1623, the First Folio was the first collected edition of the Bard’s drama, bringing together edited texts of 36 plays--including 18 that had never before been published.

Only 233 copies of the First Folio are known to survive. One is held by the Newberry.

Tiny love notes attached with gum cover the courtyard walls at the house of Juliet in Verona, Italy. It is said that if you leave a declaration of your love at Juliet's House you and your lover will be together forever. However, going forward, anyone found sticking notes to the 13th century walls will now be fined 500 Euros by the City of Verona due to the damage being caused. Not to worry though, removable walls have been erected in the tunnel leading to the courtyard of the house to allow for the tradition to continue.

Lots of crisscrossing angles in this orangey peach and blue steel hued sunset shot of a little rectangular pond in the gardens on the west side of the Festival Theatre grounds. My poor dog—I laughed out loud when she reached too far for a sip of water and fell in...
A shot from shoe-level, trackside of the Stratford Railway Station which sits reflected neatly in a puddle from recent rains and festooned with pots of fuchsia hung from its eaves. To the left, the sky and its reflection a soft blue textured with white puffs of fair weather cumulus.
A view of Tom Patterson Island and the arched bridge connecting it to the Stratford mainland. It is dusk, the sky is amber, there are a few strings of lights in the shadows on the island and in the dar foreground a long dragon boat sits moored, awaiting its next crew. The monochromatic amber, the still water reflecting the island and sky, and the boat give the scene a somewhat Oriental feel.
A view of Tom Patterson Island through the willows lining the footpath along the shore of Victoria Lake. The sun is about to set, its disc still blazing in the foliage for a few more minutes. There is a lovely blend of yellow and green and the trees somehow seem especially tall in this light.

When Shylock spoke Yiddish:

In the late 19th and early 20th century, Yiddish #theater star Jacob P. Adler (right) was known for playing Shylock in "The Merchant of Venice." His portrayal was no villainous cliche but a proud #Jew who, even in defeat, left the stage with his head high.

Invited to bring the show to Broadway in English (which Adler spoke with a heavy accent), he agreed to a compromise: everyone else spoke in English but Shylock spoke #Yiddish.
