Just a quick note on what’s going on at Millman’s Shakesblog (since it’s not easy to find the blog on the site, I’m going to periodically post about what I’ve been posting about, redundant as that seems).
– The latest “Double-Feature Feature” on Alfred Hitchcock’s “Rope” and Richard Linklaters “Bernie.”
– A review of the recent Acting Company production of Shakespeare’s, Julius Caesar, in which the Roman Emperor bears a striking resemblance to Barack Obama (and Brutus bears a striking resemblance to John McWhorter).
– An interpretation of Harold Pinter’s The Caretaker, apropos of the excellent production of the play now on view at The Brooklyn Academy of Music.
– A review of Donald Margulies’s Time Stands Still, recently performed at the Steppenwolf in Chicago.
– And a meditation on camp, apropos of recent productions of Jean Genet’s The Maids, at Red Bull Theatre, and Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, at Classic Stage.
Do come by and visit. And come back later in the week as well – I still have to write up my thoughts on Gatz, on the Mike Nichols-directed production of Death of a Salesman currently on Broadway, and of the Goodman Theatre in Chicago’s current production of Eugene O’Neill’s The Iceman Cometh.
