Retro Everything But Imaginary #264: Brush Up Your Shakespeare

I’m afraid there’s no time for a new Everything But Imaginary column this week, friends. I’ve got a small role in the Sam and Jim Acting Company’s production of William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, opening tomorrow night at the Houma Civic Center in Houma, Louisiana. (Performances are 7 p.m. on August 28, 29, and Sept. 3-6, with 2 p.m. matinees on August 30, 31 and Sept. 7. Assuming Gustav doesn’t blow us all away.) Tonight is the dress rehearsal, and I’ve just got no time to write the column.

So instead, I’d like to invite you all to read an EBI from last May, Brush Up Your Shakespeare. I wrote this at the time that we just started working on Hamlet, and while I was teaching two different Shakespearian plays at once to two different classes. It’s kind of a fun reimagining of various comic book heroes as Shakespeare would have written them. At least, I’m proud of it. Back next week!
