"Goodnight Desdemona, Goodmorning Juliet"
Othello on thursday night at NT Live, and then on Friday night, Steve and I headed to the Belfy Theatre for our date night: Steve got us tickets to see the play "Goodnight Desdemona, Goodmorning Juliet"
Basically, it is a comedy by Anne-Marie MacDonald (who wrote the book Fall on Your Knees), about a geeky assistant professor of English who believes that Othello and Romeo and Juliet were originally comedies, and that Shakespeare turned them into tragedies. She falls into the two plays themselves, and attempts to change the outcome. Much hilarity ensues. It was such fun, particularly having seen Othello the night before. Serious fun. If this play comes to town, you should definitely check it out!
