Celebrate the Oscars with a little Shakespeare-in-L.A. Watch all three episodes of ‘Titus and Dronicus’ at www.titusanddronicus.com!
We finished our Kickstarter this morning for ‘Titus and Dronicus’ and couldn’t be more thrilled with the outpouring of support. Thanks to all the lovely Tumblr folks who reblogged our trailer and helped spread the word <3
If you’re in the mood for some hardcore Shakespearean geekery today, check out this fantastic new podcast from Cindy Marie Jenkins, LA theatre and Hollywood Fringe treasure. Me and Megan (two of the co-creators of Titus and Dronicus, part of @betterthanshakespeare) talk Shakespeare adaptations with other awesome LA theatre people.
“‘No-one has ever modernized the settings for Shakespeare, so that kind of innovation is really exciting and satisfying,’ Megan jokes in their Kickstarter announcement. ‘Shakespeare wasn’t really an innovator. We’ve cleaned up the plots and tightened them – they were kind of a mess. His characters are pretty shallow. And our language is really rich, there’s a real poetry to it.’”
Huge thanks to hyper-mediation for helping us spread the word!
(And yes for the record of course we’re joking about being Better Than Shakespeare (maybe… (I mean, in some ways…)))
