Pretty much everything said summing up Revenge tragedies, the three opinions given, could all be said of the horror movie. Morality play (the virgin always lives), gore porn, and edge pushing.

Mendicant Bias (8 days ago)
Nope. Not even close. It's just that the English are about to have a bad case of Cromwell, and so CC is gonna have to migrate back to the Continent next to find some good public entertainment.

Starting to see why Shakespeare is the popular one.... YIKES BEN!
CapriUni (9 days ago)
And yet, in their lifetimes, Ben and Will were friends and colleagues. The Lord Chamberlain's Men/The King's Men (Shakespeare's acting company -- it changed names after James 1 came to the throne) put on Jonson's plays, too. And, according to an account attributed to Shakespeare's daughter Judith, remained friends after Shakespeare retired. So... you know: the world of theater needs all kinds: Wes Cravens and Tom Stoppards. Though it is true that Shakespeare has aged particularly well; his writing is complex enough that each story can be reinterpreted to fit with modern mores.

Later on could you please do theatre videos for Tennessee Williams plays, like The Glass Menagerie, along with A Street Car Named Desire and Cat On A Hot Tin Roof; and also about Stanislavski, Artuad, Frantic Assembly and Brecht please :)
