Not Quite Shakespeare, Shakespeare Adaptations

This morning’s post on the new Library of America volume, Shakespeare in America: An Anthology from the Revolution to Now, made some members of our staff recall their favourite Shakespeare productions. Of course, some of our favourites aren’t quite the most “faithful” to the Bard’s original text—here’s just a few that range from the silly to the sublime.

  • O [Othello]
  • Ten Things I Hate about You [The Taming of the Shrew]
  • A Midsummer Night’s Rave [A Midsummer Night’s Dream]
  • She’s the Man [Twelfth Night]
  • Forbidden Planet [The Tempest]
  • Strange Brew [Hamlet]
  • The Lion King [Hamlet]
  • Ran [King Lear]
  • Throne of Blood [Macbeth]
  • West Side Story [Romeo and Juliet]

Also one time he was supposed to write a violin and piano duet, and he wrote the violin part, but he didn’t really feel like writing the piano part, or was too lazy etc. When the concert came up (he played the piano while a friend played the violin) he set up a blank piece of paper (so people would think he was reading music) and improvised. After the concert he wrote it down so it could be published

okay i’ve reblogged this before but can we just give a shoutout to the orchestra that had to sightread the overture to an audience at the premiere of an opera

And I thought waiting until the last minute to write final exam essays was bad…

"PALESTINIAN GIRL, YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD"

"When someone enrols in the medicine school that one of the longest schooling required profession, by the time they finish school they will be around 30-or at least on their late 20s. But not for this girl; Eqbal Asa’d is a Palestinian Muslim woman that started the Medicine school when she was just 14 years old, ‘myhijab.info’ reports. Asa’d got her Bachelor degree in Medicine with Honors and was set by the Guinness World Records as the youngest doctor in the World, according to the report. She has been signed to go to Ohio, U.S to continue her education even further and become a Pediatrician."  - Source

YOU GUYS SHE IS THE YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD. SHE IS A FEMALE, A MUSLIM AND A MINORITY. AND SHE IS THE YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD. 

WHY ARE WE NOT HEARING MORE ABOUT HER?

you know why.

Finished my first cross stitch project. It’s an air freshener for my car. I’m pretty proud of it.

Hey, that’s clever! I might just have to steal that idea. Except I don’t have a car, I own a scooter. But I could totally use an air freshened for those times I ride past cow fields!

Cute idea!
