Shakespeare!

My parents started taking my sister and me to the state's official Shakespeare festival when I was around 12, and we've gone pretty much ever year since then. Tonight I'll be going to see Twelfth Night with a friend, and that has me wondering what your experience with/opinion of Shakespeare is?

Twelfth, TWELFTH, damned auto correct!

I quite like Troilus and Cressida because it's utterly oddball, lol.
The performance of Twelfth Night (and I always misspell "twelfth" at least once) I just went to was really delightful--the kind of thing where I wish I could get a recording of it, but so much of the magic is in the spontaneity of a live performance, y'know?
I do know. We have this amazing little set of castle ruins in a place called Bishops Waltham, I used to live there, and the very first open air live performance I saw of anything Shakespeare was performed there. It left such an impression I couldn't wait to go again.

I've actually seen Rufus Sewell playing Macbeth, live, and he was amazing!
