The Real Housewives of Shakespeare

This hysterical production from the Great River Shakespeare Festival is making the rounds on Twitter.  I gave it a pass at first since I never watched the original tv show and figured that I wouldn't get most of the jokes.


If you've not seen it yet, do what I did -- try to identify all the wives before they're introduced.  They had me at "what is that knocking WHAT IS THAT KNOCKING!?  :) :) :)

P.S. - I'm going to let Juliet's use of "like" slip by...once.  That was like, like, fingernails on a blackboard.

That was hilarious. Simply hilarious. (Okay, so I didn't understand quite all of it, mostly due to the fact that I haven't yet seen/read King Lear, but all the rest was funny.)
For a long time I've held the opinion that Lady M------ and Gertrude would get along well, but now I'm not so sure. And Juliet's a little young for that crowd, isn't she?
