This week on Crash Course Theater, Shakespeare is dead. Long live Shakespeare. Well, long live English theater, anyway. Actually, it's about to get banned. Anyway, we're discussing where English theater went post-1616. We'll talk about Ben Jonson, revenge tragedies, and court masques.

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 :)
