More of a reception thing. Somebody comes over, whispers in the father’s ear, he gives an order, next thing you know these random drunk dudes are being chased through the party by big guard dogs. I guess they were stealing stuff from the coat closet.

Priest asks the bride if she does. Groom answers for her, says Damn right she does! so loud the priest gets startled, drops his book, loses his place, all the while the groom is telling him he’s awful at his job. Bride is mortified.

Ok, name of the game is to get Jimmy Fallon to read a Shakespearean “wedding fail” on the show. Good luck!

Groom waits until his big moment, then accuses the bride of cheating on him. Bride proceeds to faint. Chaos follows, groom leaves with his friends. Then the bride’s Dad sides with the groom! Says his daughter’s dead to him. Groom ended up trying to marry her cousin.

I dunno, think this picture deliberately left all the other women out? Sticks out like a sore thumb to me.

I feel like I should have a post up about the passing of Franco Zeffirelli but I’m already late and I do not have time to do it the justice it deserves. Flights of angels, sir. The rest is silence. RIP.

I did not realize that the new Much Ado About Nothing with Danielle Brooks was an all black production. Does anybody know what they did with Claudio’s troublesome “I’ll marry her even if she’s black” line? Easiest to just cut it, wondering if they chose otherwise.

Somebody tell me about The Shakespeare Centre in Stratford Upon Avon? Is that a stop we should make (noting my family in tow, not just geeky me)? *Can* we stop there? My kids have been in the Folger Vault, so they’re up for seeing interesting academic things, too.

Speaking of buses, how does one get around? Is transportation a “tickets in advance” sort of thing or can you easily make that decision the day of?

Thanks! But the “if you have time” is my question, can one do all the things in 2.5 days?

Ok people, I’m arriving in Stratford Upon Avon on a Monday morning, and I have all of Tuesday and Wednesday at my disposal. What should I do? Looking for specifics (i.e. how much time should I leave for / between each thing, etc…) I’ve booked nothing so far.

Say, “I’ll still marry her, even if it turns out she’s black.”

Tell the bride, who is also your daughter, that you’d prefer she were dead.
