Is anyone else here in love with Shakespeare?
Someone who loves the drama, the genius wordcraft, the way it gets into your heart, either with its humanity or iambic pentameter or both and just latches itself there forever?
I’ve been so for about two years now, wanted to know if someone else wanted to nerd out about Shakespeare.
So if ya are, what’s your favorite play? Character? Dream role? Anything else you feel like talking about??
My own favorite play is Macbeth. My favorite character is Macduff, my dream role is Lady Macbeth, which I’m currently playing.

I am in love with Shakespeare, but newly in love. So I don’t know as much as I would like to, but I will someday!
Last summer was when I really got my first taste of Shakespeare in a positive light. I got to play Helena in A Midsummer Night’s Dream which was AWESOME. And after that, I was hooked. I’ve only read three because I like to take my time and find all the little details of it and understand every last part. A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Othello, and The Merchant of Venice. TMoV is my favorite, and Portia probably my favorite character… working on playing her part right now. I just love the whole courtroom scene, I could on about it for hours.
There’s this group called Stone Soup Shakespeare that performs Shakespeare plays in parks around the country. They are amazing. The last one they put on was Much Ado About Nothing. I want to read Hamlet next.

Hey there! It’s cool to know people are still falling for The Bard. I mean, I didn’t really get hit with the lovebug until three years ago,
But ooooh, that’s amazing! Mine started when I was Emilia in Othello.
Actually, if you’re reading a play alone, taking your itme is way better. I don’t like to read ’em super fact unless its aloud with friends. I’ve actually had shakespeare dates where the date and I read one aloud together, or done it with friends. It’s much easier when read aloud, bottom line, because they were written with sound in mind, so going slow makes tooootal sense.
Oh! I like Portia a lot. I know the tragedies better than the comedies, but how can one not love Portia? (I feel the same about the Banquet scene of Macbeth though)
And good luck with Hamlet! Hamlet’s a polarizing character alright, tell me how you feel as you go through it.

My favorite monologue is from Macbeth, Act III Scene IV. The speech with “Blood will have blood” in it. Also the speech in Act II Scene III where Macbeth has the line “Multitudinous seas in incarnadine.”

I have both of those memorized, and a few of Lady Macbeth’s, because I played her.
Sonnet 70 is my favorite, it’s just so sad.
And ah, me too. It’s definitely gotten better as I’ve grown more mature.
ALSO, anyone here heard of Original Pronunciation? It’s great.
