Clandestine Geekery

Waiting in line at the bank today, one woman spots somebody else she knows and they have a mini-reunion. I don't catch the names but it's not long before I hear #1 say to #2, "Are you still doing any theatre or music?"

My ears perk up.  Theatre?  I suppose they coud mean musical theatre.

#2 replies, among other things, "Right now I'm working with the Burlington Players..."

I pull out my phone and google the 2013-2014 for the Burlington Players to see if there's any Shakespeare on the bill, giving me a wide open excuse to invite myself into the conversation (and look like a complete stalker).

Alas there is not.  39 Steps. Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.  Although I do spot (later) that their teen program did something called "Reviving Ophelia."

<shrug>  That's the kind of geekery I do for you folks.  I smell even the hint of something Shakespeare to talk about and I'm all over it. ;)

The Shakespeare Geek blog has been around since 2005, making it the oldest continually active Shakespeare blog today. Shakespeare is Universal represents our biggest fund-raising effort to date. For almost eight years and almost three thousand posts I've tried my best to make a place where everyone can talk about everything related to the subject of Shakespeare. If you've found my sites and products useful and interesting, I would greatly appreciate your support so that I can continue to do even more. Thank you.
