Will guys be smoother than an i Phone app or get the 404 as they rove from chair to chair sweet-talking the ladies.

The speed dating starts at 7 pm, runs for a little more than an hour and is followed by sexy presentations at pm by sapiosexual scholars Lillian Park and Laura Duncan.

The Editions also reflect the expertise gained through the regular performance of Shakespeare’s works in the Folger’s Elizabethan Theater.

I want to express my deep thanks to editors Barbara Mowat and Paul Werstine for creating these indispensable editions of Shakespeare’s works, which incorporate the best of textual scholarship with a richness of commentary that is both inspired and engaging.

Tragedy: A dramatic piece dealing with a serious, tragic theme with an unhappy ending.

The main character or characters are destined through a flaw of character or conflict with some overpowering force to downfall or destruction.

The New Folger Editions of Shakespeare’s plays, which are the basis for the texts realized here in digital form, are special because of their origin.

Did you see the one kid dressed in purple as a court jester with a bouncy white feather in his hat? Freestanding set pieces, including the burial platform in the final scene, don’t tie in with the lush, painted flats and backgrounds.

How they are positioned far downstage forces actors to perform in a static linear fashion, whether standing, fighting, sitting or lying down. William Shakespeare’s incomparable writing does not need any sort of underscore, much less a soap opera drone that drowns out persistent mumbled-and rushed dialogue.

Nobody in this arts community has been a more enthusiastic advocate of the productions mounted by Fun House Theatre in Plano than me.

Here it is, based on The play’s words or sense really don’t matter, so just mumble them as fast as possible, kids. Non-stop, annoying piano riffing on a mournful tune composed for the 1968 Zefferelli movie adaptation completes the enterprise, often drowning out the mumbled-and-rushed dialogue. How I longed for the elegant simplicity and veracity presented in the Fun House Theatre “Hamlet” a few years back.
