eeeee yay!  
The Globe is doing Richard II next year!

Now if only they decide to cast Jamie Parker as Richard (and film it, of course)…


In not really related news, we started doing Juliet's "Gallop apace" today in class. Bliss. Stressed syllables and plosives together, how wonderful.

OMG Merchant and Measure both! I SO want them to film them both, but most especially Measure -- the BBC Complete Works version is admittedly one of the better ones in the series, but it is surely one of the most sadly underfilmed plays in the canon considering how damn good it is in performance.

Yes - I have never even seen a production of Measure, so that will be great if they film it (and they filmed All's Well, so there's a chance)! I was lucky enough to see their last Merchant - but it's so great that the season is so comedy-full.

I am totally sending them mental Jamie Parker vibes. IT WORKED WITH DAVID TENNANT OKAY.

Yes, the Globe is wonderful - I've loved seeing plays there! But I will settle for a recording… :)
