People Who Truly Understand What I'm All About
by William Shakespeare
Many people want to sound like an expert on me. Sometimes someone actually does. Here's a recent nugget from Charles Isherwood in the NYT:
"I sometimes think acting in Shakespeare is akin to singing opera. The technical demands are so intense that the concentration required simply to meet them makes it difficult to maintain an immersion in the human drama that the language is serving. It’s a rarefied feat, the aesthetic equivalent of juggling while riding a unicycle."
I say he gets me. So therefore, he does!
