I didn't know Shakespeare wrote DAMN YANKEES!
 
Yes, it's a joke for this Friday afternoon, but not one too far from real
life. A few years ago I worked at Shak Santa Cruz during the "Jealousy
Season" (WT, OTHELLO, and AMADEUS).  SSC usually does one non-Shakespeare
for variety.  My wife reported that, in line at the ladies restroom, two
local matrons were discussing AMADEUS.  They hadn't known that Will S.
wrote a play about Mozart.  They would have been more overwhelmed had they
realized the true genius of Shakespeare, who could write a play about a
composer not yet born in Shakespeare's lifetime!
