The unabridged Bard

There are Shakespeare fans, and then there are Shakespeare fans:

Wellesley College succeeds in reading entire unabridged Shakespeare in less than 24 hours

Unfortunately I didn't hear about the marathon until yesterday, so I couldn't go. But if they do an encore next year, I'll drag my SO to a reading or two.

If sprints are more your style, the Reduced Shakespeare Company has just the script for you. The most straitlaced purists might be offended (hey, Shakespeare had sex jokes too), but most people will find it hilarious, and it's even funnier when performed.
