As of yesterday, I have a new appreciation for Shakespeare and all of his works!! The Element’s apprentices have been given our new assignment! To do a production, like the Reduced Shakespeare Company, where we act out each of Shakespeare’s plays in 3 minutes!
As I mentioned before, the Reduced Shakespeare Company took this challenge on and produced, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged). I was watching the clips of their performance on Youtube, and I was inspired to say the least. They use Shakespeare’s language mixed with modern language, so you get the feel of Shakespeare while understanding everything! As I was working, the enormity of this project started to dawn on me. The part I can look forward to is being a real Shakespeare scholar; being able to know all of his plays inside and out is exciting!
