    She’s almost too cool to play Hamlet, every version of Hamlet I’ve seen cast him as a winy tool.

    Oh, this is one of the best reasons to read you, MaryAnn. I learn cool new things in the morning. (I learn other stuff too, that don’t make me smile, but still good for me.)

  • Maybe she found something new in the character!

  • I live to serve.

    Well, she impressed someone during casting so that’d be a safe bet to make. I’m glad they didn’t feel the need to gender or “race” swap anyone just because of who’s playing the lead.
