Tivo Alert...

Sadly, I missed a recent airing of "My Shakespeare: Romeo and Juliet with Baz Luhrmann" which apparently aired over the new year on PBS. My friend Devin says it's a must-see documentary following a group of amateur actors from London's inner city as they attempt to put on the show (in London's esteemed West End, no less). From a Muslim "Juliet" who can barely look Romeo in the eyes, let alone kiss him, to street thugs who know a thing or two about real violence (as opposed to stage fighting), this unlikely group of thesbians come out of the four-week experience changed men and women. From what I can tell, various public television stations will be re-airing the program, so check local listings and catch it if you can. -- Amy
