breaking bad

Some unusual Shakespearean links

Shakespeare's birthday so:

Stick Figure Hamlet presents 'To be or not to be' (follow arrows at the bottom of the screen for the rest of the scene)

Catherine Tate recites 'My Mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun' to David Tennant (at the end of that five minute clip) thanks to nostalgia_lj

The Beatles present the 'Rude Mechanicals' scene from Midsummer Night's Dream for real. Paul is Pyramus and John is Thisbe ('Thou art my love') Who knew a bunch of teenage girls would be so enthusiastic about Shakespeare.
