Here's What Kansas City Shakespeare Festivalgoers Need To Know About 'Much Ado'

Kansas City's annual summer ritual, the Heart of America Shakespeare Festival, is upon us. This year's production is the comedy "Much Ado About Nothing." This also means it's time for another annual ritual at KCUR: tracking down Geraldo U. Sousa, a professor of English at the University of Kansas, who has written several books on Shakespeare.

Maroon 5 - Three Little Birds is the song of the day and this is the OPEN THREAD for right now . . .

The title of the Festival Play can also be interpreted as
"Much Ado About an "O" Thing"
with the "O" being a feminine anatomical reference, but that was an appeal to the base crowds of bawdy lowlifes who actually went to the Theatre in Shakespeare's (or Oxford's, or Bacon's or Kruul-El of Antares') time, but today's audiences are far too refined and sophisticated for that sort of foolishness.

Mr, Honesty (Trust Me) said...

So the Mid Continent System and Mr. Potter want to change the concept of a Library from a "warehouse full of books".


But what they've accomplished so far is to change it into a "warehouse half-full of books and half full of homeless, with a third playing Solitaire and a third looking at porn on the computers, while the final third sleeps, snoring and farting, with their shoes off"!

I don't see the improvement.
