An indie movie that’s a queer version of Romeo and Juliet set in the Australian roller derby scene: Star Cross’d Jammers sounds exciting.

Just found out this book exists. It expands upon the plot of the Doctor Who episode “The Shakespeare Code”, and explores the Doctor’s appearances throughout Shakespeare’s life and impact on his writing. Sounds like fun!

"Tastes in acting, as in everything else, certainly vary, but a great Shakespearean performance is easy to spot. You know one when you see one, although it’s probably more accurate to say that you know one when you don’t see one: when the language no longer feels remote, when the humanity of the actor and the character seem indivisible, when the emotion being expressed is no longer veiled by poetic phrasing but revealed by it, creating a shock of recognition in your own heart."

Obviously Emma Thompson is my favourite Beatrice. Eve Best is a close second though.

But are you sure that Benedick loves Beatrice so entirely?

Seen all but #5. Which I must watch now! Kenneth Branagh will always be my favourite Benedick.

llamapunk:

What was it you told me of today, that your niece Beatrice was in love with Signior Benedick?

Hero thinks surely she will die. For she says she will die if he love her not, and she will die ere she make her love known, and she will die if he woo her.

waaait, I don’t know all of these. are they all adaptations of Much Ado?

Yup.

  1. 1993 film starring Kenneth Branagh & Emma Thompson
  2. 2012 film starring Alexis Denisof & Amy Acker (directed & produced by Joss Whedon)
  3. 2012 Globe Theater on Screen production (I think. IMDB has a cast list but not which characters they played.)
  4. 2011 Digital Theatre production starring David Tennant & Catherine Tate set at a beach resort in the 1980s
  5. Nothing Much To Do webseries starring Jake McGregor & Harriett Maire in a New Zealand high school version
  6. 2005 ShakespeaRe-Told episode starring Damian Lewis & Sarah Parish
