Comment:	Re: SHK 19.0212 Shakespeare 24

John Webb's account of "Shakespeare 24" allows an immediate raising of 
the spirits. The spectacle in which "60 youth groups will stage 30 and 
45 minute adaptations of Shakespeare's plays . . .  Performances will 
take place in languages as diverse and varied as the participants 
themselves. Youth groups will produce their own interpretations of 
Shakespeare, which may include the use of local dance, music, and 
performance art forms" -these are surely concepts to make the heart 
leap. Those who allowed the beauty of the recent 'speechless' Macbeth 
must look once more to their standards. "Shakespeare 24" and its 
"performance art forms" will carry all before them. As to the link with 
Facebook, it tends to take the breath away.
