Hooks to hang Hamlet on

Sometimes it's even easier if the humor comes first and the "real" information later. Someone who has seen Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, the Simpsons episode about Hamlet, and the Reduced Shakespeare Company's little Hamlet will have many hooks to hang the real Hamlet on, if and when they see it.

  1. This seems apt, for me, just now. Not only are we getting a lot of that humorous Shakespeare, but I have been writing a lot of Shakespeare- themed fiction lately.

    Thanks for these tiny treasures!

  2. Ooooh, the Gilligan's Island episode where they do Hamlet, too! It's the Best! ;)

  3. May I add a delighted "Exactly" to this? Some of my first introductions to Shakespearean theatre came through such places as the Muppet Show and the Twilight Zone, Start Trek and Looney Tunes...
