Once again, we’re about to go on here – this is the cast of Strindberg’s “Crimes and Crimes” coming to my aid. Strindberg champion Ulrika Brand has translated, adapted, and directed this production to mark the centennial of Strindberg’s death. There are many events happening in the Boston/Cambridge area concurrently, all a part apparently of […]

Oh this one definitely goes among my all time favorites on this project. Amazing little scene that so few people would know, not a one famous line but still a heart wrenching short window into a huge man’s final hours – one of Shakespeare’s favorite situations. We’re sitting at the perfect hour of the day […]
Big apologies for the lighting on this one. You don’t get the lake and pretty sun and my mug all at once….the other videos from this session (into Act V) are much better… Also, just to note twice in two breaths that I’m a grossly imperfect soul, you’ll note on the masking tape header at […]
Wish I could have caught the cop as we were passing along Route 9 here. He did give a funny look. But taping him probably would have brought Yorick and I some undesired attention. After all, we’ve given blood today. We’ve been to clinics! And we’re movin through this play. But yes I promise I […]
Thought I’d keep reading. This video, while not feeling particularly dangerous, LOOKS dangerous, so I won’t do this anymore. BUT – Shakespeare on the road is better than no Shakespeare at all!
OK so VERY sadly, a scene and a half was cut off from our filming in the JP Arboretum. I think I’ll just tape this whole scene over again, but here it is after line 100 – lame I know to post now since I’ll likely replace it with something better, but at least it’s […]
Great banter right at the top of this video with my neighbor. She’s seen a production of Romeo & Juliet which is always extremely encouraging. Especially to me knowing this area – we are in what I like to call the MEATLAND district – there’s a store with that name right on the corner. But […]
This was really fun, and I HIGHLY recommend this activity for those of you who tend to hate needles. Why not be struggling to make sense of some arcane scene of some arcane Shakespeare play, regaling your nurse, a ceramic skull, and a cheap camera, than be digging your nails into your hand dreading the […]
Well I suppose if I’m going to read Shakespeare at the post office, in the grocery store, while drawing blood for god’s sake, I might as well tape while I’m pumping gas. It’s a short scene – those willing enough to find the resonances can please watch along and indicate them here. Not sure how […]
This was hysterical. Yorick, trusty listener, stalwart participant in my journey, has just played wingman – and rather well at that. You’ve got to watch the whole video to see how… At the Maugus Restaurant in downtown Wellesley – it’s been here forever and should be.
Gotta love Whole Foods. This one has come in right in our neighborhood in Jamaica Plain – often called Jamaica Spain because of the huge Latino presence on this end of Centre St. This is Jackson Square, and to be clear, JP is in Boston proper. But we’re definitely the Mason-Dixon of this […]
What a joke! So annoying to have the top of the frame JUST below my eyes most of the time…to be honest it’s a glitch in iMovie 3 – occasionally taking a video from one window to the other creates this unfortunate cropping. I’ve since realized it can be avoided by restarting the program, but […]
Here we are strolling through the beautiful Arnold Arboretum on this early autumn day just knocking on winter’s door. The space is lovely – I don’t do it all that much justice with any camera work to speak of really, but the serenity and tranquility of the place does come off through the scene. My […]
When I’m doing these suburban scenes, I need to somewhere with less traffic. It didn’t feel that distracting while I was reading, but the audio of this isn’t great. However, it’s much worse at the beginning than it is by and large throughout, if that’s any consolation for listeners. Full of action and bravado, this […]
Here we are back in Lenox to film a short scene here on a GORGEOUS Indian Summer day. Just amazing. We had a nice chat with Artistic Director Tony Simotes just behind us here, who was probably soaking in the rays in peace and quiet until we showed up. Looks to be an exciting season […]
