𝐋𝐎𝐂𝐀𝐓𝐈𝐎𝐍: an alley off of w. 84th st.
HER KEY SITS IDLE IN THE IGNITION, keeping the bike’s headlight off in favor of maintaining anonymity. She's waiting on word from Jack, arguably the least conversational contact in her phone yet somehow also the most disconcerting. He’s at the performance, presumably enjoying the show in a way she knows she never could. But she’s better out here, time away in nature breeding a restored appreciation for solitude. She’s always been more comfortable in the shadows.
The text hits her phone just as she starts to take her eye off the device, and then she’s turning the key, the swish of a sent message accompanying the engine’s roar: ‘Be there in 2.’

So O'Hara populated his stage with a diverse group of actors: Ali Stroker plays Queen Anne in a wheelchair, deaf actress Monique Holt plays the Duchess of York and uses sign language, and Greg Mozgala, who plays both Edward IV and Henry VII, has cerebral palsy.

Just watched the 2019 PBS live production of Shakespeare in the Park at Delacorte Theater. The one with the all-Black cast. I'm not much of a Shakespeare fan and it takes a lot for me to get invested in his plays, but this was end-to-end brilliant. Like @also-a-low-quality-child said, Shakespeare and AAVE rhythms are a match made in heaven. The dialogue was so beautifully expressive and sparkling, the pacing excellent. It had its own tempo. I've never appreciated iambic pentameter properly before.
I fully expected to fall asleep before the end as I usually do with late night movies, but I stayed up watching to the last minute, laughing and whooping. It's incredible how much depth they gave each character in what was supposed to be a comedy. Also truly refreshing to see a fat woman in a main role playing a heroine who was adored and coveted. Hero could so easily have been just a virginal fainting flower but the actress made the character emote like a gale force wind.
Me: It's sweet that Benedick turned from fuckboy into the only real one
@also-a-low-quality-child : Truly
@undivine-intervention : There’s a noble difference between a fuckboy and a manslut
Me: 👆🏽 Shakespeare 👆🏽
Can't recommend it enough. Here's the download link for anyone who wants it. It's at the very top, with a subtitle file linked in the OP's comment. (The file is almost 3GB though.)

New Yorkers love a line. Zabars, cupcakes, Cronuts, Supreme, the Governor's Island ferry, Blue Bottle coffee, and arguably the most enjoyable—Shakespeare in the Park. What began 60 years ago by Joseph Papp, founder of the Public Theater, in an effort to bring free theater to the people has become a welcome rite of summer.

Sadly, the time window for watching it for free on the PBS site has passed, it can only be accessed with a PBS Passport subscription now - and these Shakespeare in the Park are never put on DVD much to my chagrin (ditto with the MET Operas)
ah man that sucks, but I will do some investigating to see it soon. that clip was really fun!

What’s the point of the Public Theatre’s Shakespeare in the Park performances airing on PBS if they’re not going to be on home video afterwards?

O’Hara’s “Richard III“ stars Danai Gurira, known for her work in “Black Panther,” as the infamously deformed and murderous despot. In O’Hara’s adaptation, Gurira’s Richard is crippled by the gaze of others, his self-hatred fueled by an internalization of color and gender. As Gurira proclaims her Richard to be “unfinished, sent before my time into this breathing world scarce half made up,” her words describe disability not as physical impairment, but as other.
“A lot of us feel that we have something wrong with us, because society looks at us and says that we’re not the best we can be,” O’Hara continued. “And so this is an interesting take that Danai and I are dealing with, because a diverse group of people negotiate projections all the time. Women negotiate. People of color negotiate. Gay people negotiate.”
“Richard hates himself,” he continued. “And he is acting in the way that people who hate themselves do. If there is a deformity, it’s his interior self. And you can’t govern from that. You can’t govern from a place of self-hate.”

My town has a Shakespeare in the Park program this summer! I’ve never seen or read three of the four plays they’re doing so I’ll be enjoying Twelfth Night, The Merry Wives of Windsor, and Richard III for the first time.
They’re also doing Much Ado About Nothing, which I love and have seen & read many times. Can’t wait to see the rest!
