Tuscaloosa is an hot, empty place in the summer: few undergraduates, no escape from the heat, and (after the Rude Mechanicals’ show in early June) no theatre on the University of Alabama’s campus. And that means nothing to post on this lonely blog: no casting calls, no staged readings, no ShakesFilms.
So, as a summer vacation from our regularly scheduled blogging, I’m going to post a few of my side projects here: mostly things that inform the aesthetic of Improbable Fictions. Below this post you can already find the voice of the Ghost preserved from our staged reading of Hamlet in April, as well as a review essay on Theater of War, a Sophoclean staged reading series founded by Brian Doerries.
In the next few weeks I’ll be travelling to England for an academic conference…which means I’m going to England to see a lot of theatre. I’ll be posting micro-reviews here, including my (fanatic) thoughts about David Tennant’s Much Ado About Nothing, Patrick Stewart’s Merchant of Venice, and Warhorse.
