NO Museum Shakespeare
NO Museum Shakespeare

And just what do I mean by this?

In the dictionary that’s in my head, there’s a phrase called “museum Shakespeare”:

mu·se·um Shake·peare
/mjuˈziəm/ /ˈʃeɪkspiːə/
noun
a production of a Shakespearean play that is so reverently directed, designed, and performed that it sucks the life out of it, rendering it a museum piece to be examined, not enjoyed, studied, not relished; often performed quasi-period by men in tights…

And to that I say No. Hell no.

Sorry. Self-righteous rant over.
