Subject: 14.1510 Shakespeare(s) in the Park
Comment:        Re: SHK 14.1510 Shakespeare(s) in the Park

Rolland Banker would call that New Yorker cover "Shakespeares in the
Park," saying:

>Don't forget the plural s. It makes all the difference.

I might accept apostrophe-s:  "Shakespeare's in the park."

Or:  "Shakespeare plays in the park."

But "Shakespeares in the park"?  Who would possibly draw, much less
recognize, Oxford, Bacon, Marlowe, et al. cavorting in Central Park?
