Question for Magic Shake-Ball:
Hey, is that guy who fell off the stage playing Spiderman in the Broadway musical gonna be OK?
Magic Shake-Ball's Answer:
"This is your doom.
Choose out some secret place, some reverent room
More than thou hast, and with it joy thy life."
--Richard II 5.6.24-6
King Henry is telling Carlisle he's free to get out of prison and start enjoying his life.
So, prison is a like a metaphor for "that Broadway show that's had lots of problems and everyone says should be shut down." Shake-Ball says that the fall was this guy's only way out of the Spidey role.
That is so harsh, Shake-Ball!
