Shakespeare on the Plaza

June 20, 2017  •  11 Comments


Bruce and I went out around lunchtime to checkout the progress on the various construction projects downtown. As it were, Bruce ended up doing Shakespeare on Civic Plaza with a city working who was inspecting the set to see what repairs needed to be made before the next regular performance. They simply alternated lines back and forth between Comedy of Errors and MacBeth.


   “Am I in Earth, in heaven, or in hell?"                "Something wicked this way comes."


"This is a sorry sight."       “Yet this my comfort: when your words are done, My woes end likewise with the evening sun.”


  "Out, damned spot! out, I say!"             “Until I know this sure uncertainty, I'll entertain the offered fallacy.”


  "Fair is foul, and foul is fair."             “Ill deeds is doubled with an evil word.”   



This is just too good.

Thanks, Tristan! I'm happy you think it's funny. The city worker was great.
rofl! that's great. I love the interaction with the innocent bystander.

No! The Idiot is Dostoyevsky, which might make some good photos. Now you have me thinking. But this was brilliant acting — Shakespeare at his best.
The drama was a tale told by an idiot, void of sound and fury, signifying something.
