Mondays suck

Magnet #199 - Taming of the Shrew

Let's hope today's magnet won't be a portent of well, today.

Just a little reminder to keep myself in check, is all.
Pin It!

Last summer my sister bought us tickets to Taming of the Shrew at a small, decently well-known outdoor Shakespeare theater in the hills of San Francisco. We went expecting to see... well, I don't know what we were expecting, but it wasn't Shrew done Bollywood style. The characters were cab drivers, owned convenience stores, everyone was dressed in traditional Indian suits and saris, and the end party was done Garba-style. It was really cool! A little strange, but definitely one of the more interesting interpretations of Shakespeare that I've ever seen.

That does sound really cool, GG.

I know it sounds weird, given all the modern movie versions, but I have to say that it never really dawned on me until recently that Shakespeare plays could be modernized. It's why I was slightly surprised at the recent Macbeth production.

It's also why I'm a little afraid of seeing an emo David Tennant in a boggan, jeans and barefeet this winter.
