This scene has my heart. And I’m not alone. The emotional center of this play hangs on this scene that no doubt requires the most care and time in rehearsal. It is one of those Shakespeare scenes that should really be four different scenes, but Shakespeare doesn’t want to break the action. Twelfth Night, Midsummer, […]
Still here in Valvoine – they haven’t stopped me yet! Actually got a fair amount read. Sights and sounds and occasional passers by make this oddly interesting. And I’ll say this about my car – the acoustics, for video at least, are great!
Well here we are – spreading out in the car while they work all around us. I think I wrote this elsewhere but when I asked if I could do this, the manager on duty said sure, just as long as it doesn’t get weird. So I kept Yorick mostly out of view – sometimes […]
Gotta love the funny looks! Guy said I could read here ‘so look as shit doesn’t get weird.’ I like that. The background vocals are pretty good! Just going about their daily business while some crazy sits in his car with his skull reading all the parts from the Wars of the Roses! TOP OF […]
Day two here filming on the set of Merry Wives of Windsor. Another totally interesting scene. I’ve never seen this play all the way through – I think I join the ranks of most people who haven’t. But I’m fascinated by this contentious and superstitious world. Seems to be playing off of very topical themes […]
Still here on the Merry Wives set. This is one of the more confusing scenes to do if it’s just one person reading. So – read along with your hymnals at home.
This scene sadly gets cut off at the end – the last 20 lines or so are missing. It’s a great scene, but all the major pieces were covered. Essentially they just read the prophecy again, a messenger comes and they all leave – else I’d labor to tag it on. I do it at […]
Still truckin’ through – except with better light!
We’re still running the show here – I’ve decided to finally descend upon my daily brethren and expose them to Yorick. So I read all of Act I here today – 90 minutes before curtain. Without a doubt, Henry VI part 2 and Merry Wives are probably about as stark as you can get in […]
