Subject:        More Popular Shakespeare

For those who are still searching for popular culture references to
Shakespeare, here's one from the recent mini-AIR mailing (AIR is the
Annals of Improbable Research, the successor to the Journal of
Irreproducible Results). It's from their Project AIRhead 2000 (a
"collection of things inexplicably named [in whole or in part] 2000"):

     ITEM 8402 (submitted by the interest-conflicted Mike Roam)
     MACBETH 2000, a "multi-media rock musical", which can be seen at
     "http://www.wcsu.ctstateu.edu/artsci/theatre/Theatre.html"

This is from the web announcement:

        Macbeth 2000 does not modernize or change any of Shakespeare's
        language, but rather utilizes it in a new and original way.
        This is a unique, thought provoking and entertaining event
        designed to make Shakespeare accessible to all ages.

        Songs include "Is This a Dagger", "Double Double", "Out Damn
        Spot", "Hold Fast the Mortal Sword", "Tomorrow', and more.

Michael
