  •  Well...I kinda like the stage. (4+ / 0-)

    I hardly ever get to see plays (my own fault: if I went by myself, I could see more, but I hate to go alone). And this burg doesn't really do Shakespeare: I should have gone to Shakespeare in the Park when I lived in Manhattan, but didn't.

    So, well, YouTube is my friend. They have, I think, been picking up rights. Or at the very least, allowing whole shows to be posted. In limited cases, but still...recently I have found several entire Broadway shows on YT, in one piece. I think YT is trying to get into the streaming online biz.

    Lots of people would agree with you about King Lear, and it's not one I've studied. I got Richard III in my high school Shakespeare class, and kinda really enjoyed it.

    Probably visceral is what appeals to high school students: it was about the same time as I saw Roman Polanski's Macbeth, on the local college campus, with a geek friend.
