Dear SHAKSPERians, the Toronto Star, Oct 9 99, looked at 2 Shakespeare
reworks.

"10 Things I Hate About You", out on video.  An irreverent reworking of
'Taming of the Shrew' set in Padua High School.
- Nods to the Bard are frequent and extremely clever.

"MacHomer: The Simpsons Do Macbeth", making its Toronto debut, has been
seen by more than 50,000 people across the country. A one-man tour de
force, Rick Miller inhabits more than 50 characters from TV's The
Simpsons, bringing them together with 300 hand-painted animation cels
and a Shakespearean script - albeit much-abbreviated and hilariously
mangled - for a 70-minute show.  reworks.
