    depends if you're going to ignore the line about having his (her?) beard plucked off and blown in his (her?) face

    ^ Even Lear was played by a female in London recently (2019). Ok, so it was Glenda Jackson who has broken a few norms in her time. But stil... Nothing is sacred

    She said in short "It's me not you"
    I said "I agree" then drove 3 hours home and was sad

    When Shaky wrote his plays, all the female parts had to be played by men; it was the law at the time.
    So I guess it's only fair that women get a shot at the lead roles if they want them, doesn't seem like crossdressing bothered the Elizabethans much. Plus, I would much rather see a great actor of any gender play a role than a less talented hack who happens to match the profile of the character they are playing.

    I once went to see a major production of Anthony and Cleopatra where the leads were dressed up as Charlie Chaplin lookalikes on unicycles for the first scene. That bothered me way more than if they had switched the gender roles. I would happily watch a horse play Hamlet as long as they did a convincing job - I always thought he was a bit of an ass anyway.

    I wonder if horses avoid a career in theatre, as 'breaking a leg'
    would be a death sentence.

    Gentlemen, we can rebuild him, we have the technology.

    My HEVC/H.265/x265 videos can be played with either VLC or MPC-HC



    It's so easy to blow up your problems...
    It's so easy to play up your breakdown...
    It's so easy to fly through a window...
    It's so easy to fool with the sound...

    It gives me the creeps and pisses me off when I buy cookies at the store and the next DAY I get an email ad from amazon about the same cookies in bulk.
    My grocery store, Kroger's, apparently not only sells my anonymous purchase data but also my identity!
    ...and this is because you have to give your info and get a card to get the "Member price" on FOOD instead of being outrageously gouged on price - what is called 'the privacy tax'. We are forced into it and I hate it! This kind of thing should NEVER be allowed, especially on a basic necessity like food!

    That being said, maybe I should look into a case or two of Chips Ahoy Chunky..
