RESEARCH (mostly)

Folger Theatre: Theatre attached to the Folger Library; see their current season.

Shakespeare Birthplace Trust: Want to see where Will and his family grew up? Check here first!

Royal Shakespeare Company: The RSC is based in Stratford-upon-Avon; this is their homepage.

Shakespeare’s Globe: The theatre of his time, recreated. Visit the home page.

Stratford Festival: Ontario, Canada does Shakespeare (and others!)


. . .and for laughs, the home page of the comedy troupe The Reduced Shakespeare Company, which happily condenses all of Shakespeare's dramas  into 90 minutes. (Other famous works and histories abridged separately). See below for the Hamlet Encores at a live show.



Hamlet Encores--Live with the Reduced Shakespeare Company

Hamlet is a tragic drama, right? Angst, death, insanity, ethical questions--weighty matters. Not in the hands of the Reduced Shakespeare Company.  Filmed at the Renaissance Pleasure Faire in Agoura, CA, in 1987.
