Another Stage Production

The Bomb-itty of Errors!. Dir. Aaron Matthew Polk. By Jordan Allen-Dutton, Jason Catalano, GQ and Erik Weiner. Perf. Krukid (née Edwin Ruyonga) et al. Station Theatre. Urbana, Illinois. 17 April—3 May 2008.
David Wright calls our collective attention to a hip-hop Shakespeare currently being staged in Urbana, Illinois.

Alas and wellaway, he hasn’t seen it yet—but we should all encourage him to do so and to give us a complete report once he has done so.

Bardfilm is normally written as one word, though it can also be found under a search for "Bard Film Blog." Bardfilm is a Shakespeare blog (admittedly, one of many Shakespeare blogs), and it is dedicated to commentary on films (Shakespeare movies, The Shakespeare Movie, Shakespeare on television, Shakespeare at the cinema), plays, and other matter related to Shakespeare (allusions to Shakespeare in pop culture, quotes from Shakespeare in popular culture, quotations that come from Shakespeare, et cetera).

Unless otherwise indicated, quotations from Shakespeare's works are from the following edition:
Shakespeare, William. The Riverside Shakespeare. 2nd ed. Gen. ed. G. Blakemore Evans. Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1997.

The very instant that I saw you did / My heart fly to your service; there resides, / To make me slave to it; and, for your sake, / Am I this patient [b]log-man.
