Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead - Tom Stoppard Waiting for Godot meets Hamlet. Waiting for Godot, the original show about nothing. (Take that, Jerry Seinfeld.) This fills in the details about R&G, 2 minor characters in Hamlet. I also couldn't help but think that Disney latched on to this as well. The Lion King is considered a rewrite of Hamlet. A few years later, Disney came out with a direct-to-DVD movie called The Lion King 1 1/2, a look at The Lion King from Timon and Pumbaa's point of view. That was a rewrite of this play. This play will be performed, along with Hamlet and Merry Wives of Windsor, at the Great River Shakespeare Festival in Winona, MN, in the summer of 2014. Go to www.grsf.org for details.
