In less than a week, I'll be embarking on the third time through the Shakespeare and Film course I developed at my college. There were substantial revisions between the first and the second, and I'm considering substantial revisions for the third.
To make room for some additions, I need to cut something. That's where I need your help! The poll to the right (and / or the comments below) invite your opinion. Should I cut Merchant of Venice and lose all the fun of comparing Laurence Olivier, Trevor Nunn, and Al Pacino? Should I cut The Taming of the Shrew and risk abandoning Kiss me, Kate as a result? I'm not sure I can bear to cut Richard III—I wouldn't be able to show Ian McKellen in the role, and that would be a shame. And how could I prevent myself from showing Branagh's Henry V, a play I have grown to appreciate, especially for its discussion value?
Please, weigh in! The poll closes on Sunday night at midnight.
