Warren Jeffs to serve at least 10 years in prison.

BBC to film all 37 of Shakespeare's plays
This project will last 12 years and include many famous actors and actresses. Anthony Hopkins was in the original project...in my ideal world he would be in this one.

It is possible that the cave of Romulus and Remus has been found.

I hope school kids get to see these movies when they study Shakespeare in school.

I remember trying to read his plays in the 9th grade, constantly referring to the foot notes at the bottom of the page, and I was never able to make heads or tails of it. Years later I got to see one of his plays performed- which is how they were meant to be used- and everything clicked. I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to understand it.

You would never give a movie script to a child and expect him to enjoy it as much as a movie, but that's how schools teach Shakespeare.


I hope that these are used for the school children, too. I know that I would have appreciated seeing quality Shakespeare (and other plays) as a child.
