"To Thine Own Self Be True"

Shakespeare was a pretty smart guy!  This past weekend I got to see Hamlet at the Utah Shakespeare Festival in Cedar City, thanks to Mom and Dad's ticket credit.  It was awesome!  Hamlet is of course a really dark show, but it's a fun one to see and I thought it was really well done.  The costumes and setting were early twentieth century, which was pretty neat.  The actor who played Hamlet himself was quite amazing.  The seats were up pretty close, so I could see spit flying everywhere when he did his dramatic monologues.
There are a lot of great lines that I had forgotten were from Hamlet.  It always amazes me how applicable Shakespeare's plays still are.  Mom, you'll be happy to know that I'm a definite fan!  Thanks again for the tickets!

I indeed am happy to know that you are a fan. To be or not to be [a Shakepseare fan] - that is [never] the question!
