Shakespeare

Last night Hawk and I attended a production of "The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) [Revised]." Yes, it's a strangely long and odd title for a play.

Hawk was so excited, she was waiting in my purse so I wouldn't forget her:


The theater is the Marlin Opera House, built in 1883, in Historic Brookville, It's on the 2nd and 3rd stories of a downtown building. Supposedly it originally seated 900 people, but I only saw space for maybe 200. Well, they say people were smaller back then (look of puzzlement).

The patient lady in front of me allowed Hawk to pose on her shoulder:


All you can see in the picture, really, is the stage backdrop with an awesome modern painting of the Bard. NO flash photos or filming allowed during the performance.


I haven't laughed so much in quite a while. Three male actors managed to take us through who-knows-how-many of the Bard's works in just a couple of hours. A silly wig made it possible for one poor bloke to play the roles of all the female characters!

Hawk might have fallen asleep during the play. I didn't hear her laughing at all. Then again, do ostriches laugh? (second look of puzzlement)
