why then, can one desire too much of a good thing?  
Buh what?

You all know that I adore Shakespeare in Love, and part of that is precisely for the reason that James Shapiro gives in this video - that it's done a lot to "make people feel connected to, and smart, and knowing about Shakespeare" (James Shapiro mentions here that he "felt dumb about Shakespeare," and now wants to "protect young people - or old people - from feeling dumb about Shakespeare," and basically I could put this on a T-shirt and wear it as my life motto, except that I think that I'm actually terrible at this because I'm always flailing around about polyptoton and deictics and function shift).

But none of that means that I understand in the slightest why you would make the movie into a play.
