Bard day’s work: what I learned from eavesdropping on RSC rehearsals

The Royal Shakespeare Company is letting the public watch the usually secret processes towards performance – from clapping games to verse sessionsThe creative process normally takes place behind closed doors. But the RSC has boldly upended that idea by streaming its Open Rehearsal Project for Henry VI Part One. What this means, in practice, is that cameras are admitted for three sessions each day. At 10am we watch a half-hour company warm-up. From noon, for 90 minutes, we get to see either a cla...

Britain Now Has Its First All-Black-Female Shakespeare Troupe

Says actor Gabrielle Brooks, one of four co-founders of the Mawa Theatre Company, “Shakespeare remains a staple of British theatre. He’s still the most produced playwright in the world and I think if we want to tackle diversity, representation and inclusion, then why not start with the Bard himself? … If we can, as black British women, embed ourselves into the history of classical texts, then I think we can bring about real change.” – The Guardian

Bard timing: Argentinian TV reports death of Shakespeare after Covid jab

Newsreader confuses Bill Shakespeare, 81, ‘the first man to get the coronavirus vaccine’ with ‘one of the most important writers in the English language’In what can only be described as a comedy of errors, an Argentinian TV news channel delivered a stunning, if slightly flawed, scoop on Thursday night when it reported that William Shakespeare, “one of the most important writers in the English language” had died five months after receiving the Covid vaccine.The gaffe of, well, Shakespearean propo...

Shakespeare’s Birthday Just Went By, And He Barely Seems Older At All

Charles McNulty on the Bard in 2021: “Shakespeare’s characters keep drawing us back because we want to understand them more fully. They leave us with an impression of unfinished business. Just as no one in our lives can be fully known, so the figures in his plays reveal only so much about what they think, feel and believe.” – Los Angeles Times

Angels catcher Max Stassi off to encouraging start at the plate

So far, so good for Max Stassi. While it’s certainly too early to say if the offensive adjustments that led to Stassi’s breakout last season will translate into a similar performance over a full season this year, the first week was encouraging. Stassi was 4 for 11 with a home run and two walks, starting four of the Angels’ first six games. “I feel great,” Stassi said Thursday from Dunedin, Fla., where the Angels are playing the Toronto Blue Jays this weekend. “I’m just trying to continue where I...

Dodgers’ road trip ends with loss in Colorado

The Dodgers were shut out into the seventh inning Sunday afternoon at Coors Field but had the tying run at the plate before losing 6-3 to the Colorado Rockies. The loss snapped a five-game winning streak for the Dodgers and kept them from sweeping a four-game series in Colorado. During the first three games at Coors Field, the Dodgers scored 30 runs. There was none of that offensive production Sunday with Mookie Betts getting the day off. The Dodgers are only 9-8 this year when Betts isn’t in th...

Hugo Weaving Explains Why He Won’t Appear in ‘The Matrix 4’, Talks About His New Take on Shakespeare With ‘Measure for Measure’ [Interview]

Modern updates of Shakespeare are always a mixed bag. But for the most part, they have a tendency to open up the Bard’s work to a new generation of viewers, especially if the story being adapted keeps the basic plot but swaps out Shakespeare’s dense language for something more contemporary. It was always his intention to make his works accessible to the masses of his time, so it makes sense that having them be understandable to audiences today might be the way to go. This is the approach with ...

Angels manager Joe Maddon wants impending free agent Andrelton Simmons to stay

ANAHEIM — If it were up to Joe Maddon, Andrelton Simmons would be back with the Angels next year. “How could you not love Andrelton Simmons playing shortstop for you?” Maddon said before Saturday’s doubleheader. “I always want to wish whomever the best for them and their family. I’m not here to negotiate for Andrelton or against the Angels. He’s just a really good baseball player that I think any team would love to have.” Simmons, who turned 31 on Friday, will be a free agent at the end of the s...

Making the case for post-secondary education for people in prison

Emily Mooney has this effective new commentary at Politico headlined "We Already Have a Tool That Lowers Crime, Saves Money and Shrinks the Prison Population."  Here are excerpts: In America, individuals released from prison often return to crime.  One study published in 2018, which analyzed data from 23 states, found that 37 percent of those released in 2012 returned to prison within three years.  Of those released in 2010, 46 percent returned to prison within five years.

Playwright Paula Vogel’s Advice Right Now: Follow Your Joy

Vogel isn’t saying this lightly. She started a play reading series in the middle of a pandemic. “The reason that I started Bard at the Gate is because I have asthma and diabetes. I was actually in rehearsal in New York, and all of us got tremendously sick and we thought, Oh, no. And I came back home to Wellfleet. And then I thought, ‘Well, it’s possible that the virus has my number.’ … [But] I don’t want to die before I see the play that I quit my job over in 1978.” – Token Theatre Friends

When exactly will audiences have the chance to see The Green Knight, director David Lowery‘s (Pete’s Dragon, A Ghost Story) cinematic reimagining of the Arthurian legend?

Shakespeare’s secret co-writer finally takes a bow … 430 years late

Thomas Watson recognised by literary scholars as the Bard’s forgotten 16th-century collaboratorHe was one of the most celebrated English playwrights of the 16th century, yet none of his plays survived, and today the name of Thomas Watson is virtually unknown. Now the writer, poet and pioneer of the English madrigal – who also saved the life of the playwright Christopher Marlowe in a street brawl – is being seen in a new light.Watson has been identified as the most likely primary author of Arden ...

Shakespeare in lockdown: did he write King Lear in plague quarantine?

Pestilence was rife in the Bard’s time, closing theatres and ravaging life. Did he write his bleak, desperate drama while self-isolating? We sift the evidence While those of us stuck in self-isolation or working from home watch TikTok videos and refresh liveblogs, a meme has been going around that claims Shakespeare made use of being quarantined during the plague to write King Lear. The Bard supposedly took advantage of the Globe’s lengthy closure to get on top of his writing in-tray – coming up...

Harry Potter Film and Stage Actors Join Forces for a New Wizarding World Project

Actors who have played Hermione Granger, Albus Dumbledore and Ginny Weasley in film and onstage will lend their voices to a new piece of the Harry Potter extended universe: an audiobook adaptation of J.K. Rowling’s The Tales of Beedle the Bard. The fictional stories played a pivotal role in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows as Dumbledore’s parting gift to Hermione; the tales then laid the groundwork for the novel’s central conflict.
