Now that is going to sound awesome. I'm wondering if Stephen has much of a throat left after rehearsals, depending on how long it runs! I'm having a bit of a giggle imaginging him in his silly face doing this, but of course he is a good enough actor he could do whatever.

What.

Don't get me wrong, it sounds pretty cool. But I think I'd be more excited if I was more into Star Trek and understood Klingon. >___>;;

I'm so confused, because right now the set in the Black Box is for Juno and the Paycock, which means the set (which looks like the interior of a tenement building) is in the middle and the audience is on both sides, and it's in no way set up for Klingons and Hamlet. Is it actually a staged reading? Or is the date wrong?

They did it as a full play a couple months ago, so it must be something like that, but still -- it's a horrible setup for any play, and especially bad for anything being recorded.

So that is what he's been twittering about for the last months! Shakespeare in Klingon sounds...weird, but I wouldn't be a Fry-Fangirl if I didn't want to hear/see it somehow^^
