Sometimes I think Twitter is bad for my mental state: namely, when people are doing things like tweeting about how awesome the Globe's Richard III is, and how we should totally go, which is just MEAN, because I *would* totally go if I could!

Waaaah, why is all the cool Shakespeare stuff happening across the pond, blah blah blah.

In other Globe news, I keep hoping I will hear something about cinema broadcasts of last season's plays, but nothing so far, which is worrisome. I think I was hoping that would happen this summer, in case I have to move someplace without access to such things...

Oh, I have ALL the Jamie Parker feelings, it is ridiculous! I haven't bought the Henry IVs yet, but I did see them in the cinema (there's a squee-review of 1H4 under my "1 henry iv" tag), so I am really looking forward to his H5, although I won't get to see it for ages given the Globe's usual pace on the DVDs. Ah well.

I don't know if it helps, but you can listen to Jamie talking about the play here:

Yeah, I really want to see Much Ado and also All's Well (Sam Crane, aka Globe Hotspur, is Bertram). I really enjoyed the Tennant/Tate production (there's a review of *that* under my "much ado about nothing" tag), but I heard fantastic things about the Globe one as well.

ha, I don't know about the LJ notifications! But I tend to tag by individual Shakespeare plays because between teaching and squee, an all-Shakespeare tag would have been pretty unwieldy!
