I'm sure we've talked about projects like this before, and here it's come around again : Subway Shakespeare. In this article, two twenty-somethings entertain a carload of passengers with the final scene from Romeo and Juliet. I like that they are interviewed right there in the subway.
What do you think? I'm torn - I think that at first I'd be fascinated to recognize what's going on, just like I am when I hear one of my kids' cartoons suddenly quote Henry V. But if I was a regular? And they did it every morning? And I had work to do? It might get a little stale. And what if they're not really any good?
Anybody ever seen Shakespeare in the wild like this?
