Last night I saw a performance of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged). It’s a Monty Pythonesque farce. The Titus Andronicus scene, a Julia Child parody, made fun of the play’s gore: Titus, his hand chopped off, and his daughter, both hands and her tongue chopped, demonstrate how to behead her rapist and cook him into a pie. It wasn’t funny. Way too close to recent events.
