Happy Birthday Bill Shakespeare

William Shakespeare born April 23, 1564

We spent yesterday afternoon on Navy Pier in Chicago watching the Chicago Shakespeare Theatre's gloriously damp production of Twelfth Night . You have to see it to appreciate just how wet a show can be. Let's just say that the pool is deep enough to do front flips into.

But today is the bard's birthday and to celebrate you can check out the national talk like Shakespeare movement

or

get yourself a Globe theatre of your very own

DramaJim says "But that's all one, our play is done.

And we'll strive to please you every day." Feste Act V Twelfth Night
