If it were done when ’tis done, then ’twere well
It were done quickly:
—Macbeth, Act 1, Scene 7
Of course, we are never done with Shakespeare. Fermat’s began life as a Shakespeare company (The Merchant of Venice in 2013 and Troilus & Cressida in 2014). And while some of our podcasts will be devoted to two and three person scenes from Shakespeare, we mean that in a larger sense Shakespeare never leaves our thoughts and his language continues to shape the way we talk and think.
And there is a lot of Shakespeare out there—in Madison, the nation and the world. This blog will post notices and comments on performances, films, academic articles, pop culture references and sometimes just musings on the man, his work and its afterlife.
