Too excited about this...!

Yes, my obsessions with theatre, and a certain 16th century playwright have been pandered to by the Royal Shakespeare Company. Because between 2006-7 they, and visiting companies, will be performing every play, sonnet, poem written (or co-written ;)) by the Bard. Sir Ian McKellen as Lear? They've got it. A musical version of the Merry Wives of Windsor? No problem. You want Dame Judi to sing in it?! Fair enough.

Of course, performing the Complete Works of Shakespeare is something the brilliant, and hugely undervalued Reduced Shakespeare Company do every night. But we can't all have their genius.

Aaaah! That is so incredibly cool!!!!

Begins to plot about getting over to Blighty in 2006-2007 and is heartened by the fact that she already has the excuse of 2 weddings to go to over there ...
