Heard about Romeo and Juliet in Baghdad playing in London slightly too late to go and see it, but it sounded really awesome.

I am instead tempted to go and see Much Ado About Nothing for a couple of reasons:

1) I really liked that play when we did it at school (enough that, er, I was tempted to take "Beatrice" as a saints name had I actually gone through with Confirmation)
2) MEERA SYAL AS BEATRICE OMG OMG OMG. BEST IDEA.

On the subject of Shakespeare, I keep being tempted to buy a DVD of Tenpou Juuninen no Shakespeare (a Japanese play that involves combining pretty much all of Shakespeare's plays into one huge one, with songs, and interesting things like musing on translations of "To be or not to be, that is the question" into Japanese over the years - spoilers, the entire cast dies by the end). I have almost ordered it before but was put off by the DVD being about £55 (DVDs are expensive in Japan, this is no exception) and the shipping from Amazon being about half that again.

Until I actually get around to buying the DVD, I will content myself with clips like this:



(The sole tag on this entry, by the way, is the reason I read Titus Andronicus because it's an actual line in the play.)
