Happy Birthday, Shakespeare!

April 23, 2011 at 12:00 am Leave a comment

It’s that magical time of year again! Yes, at this very general time at the end of April, possibly on this very day, Shakespeare may well have been born. You have to love the speculative nature of this particular literary anniversary.

In honor of the occasion, I give you a few fun tidbity videos:

First up we have the inimitable Fry and Laurie learning how best to perform Shakespeare in their “Shakespeare: Master Class: An Actor Prepares.”

Next we have the trailer for the upcoming film “Anonymous” that gives the unending debate about the authorship of Shakespeare’s works a new twist.

Lastly, a little Shakespearean “Who’s on First?” for your amusement.

And don’t forget last year’s Shakespeare and Marlowe good times when we revved up the LT time machine and interviewed the pair.

Have a happy maybe-Shakespeare’s-birthday day!
