SL Shakespeare Company: Twelfth Night Readings

Wow! Where does the time go? Much has happened since early May. CSI: NY in SL has kicked the bit bucket, Nexeus Fatale is still DJing in various venues, in fact, this weekend as part of SL’s fifth anniversary celebrations (5 years!!), and Cue the Penguin! is almost at the halfway point.

The SL Shakespeare Company is also doing very well. I caught their staged reading today of Twelfth Night, Act II at The Globe Theatre in SL. Interestingly enough, I saw the whole Twelfth Night on Friday night at Bard-on-the Beach (one of the best Shakespeare productions I have ever seen, btw). So, it was nice to hear the words once more. Also found out that classes in performing Shakespeare will be available in the Fall in SL. Details should be available on the website later on. Check out the site as well for the schedule of upcoming readings.

Also, as pointed out by the director before the show, today is the anniversary of the burning of the Globe Theatre. From Wikipedia:

On June 291613 the Globe Theatre went up in flames during a performance of Henry the Eighth. A theatrical cannon, set off during the performance, misfired, igniting the wooden beams and thatching. According to one of the few surviving documents of the event, no one was hurt except a man whose burning breeches were put out with a bottle of ale.[6]
