Kenneth Branagh on "To Be Or Not To Be"....

I found this interview really informative.  As Hamlet is meant to be seen and not read there is certainly some value in understanding how actors and directors work through such an iconic piece of text.  It's only about 4 minutes.

Let me know if you have any questions

Missed Class

Just a reminder for those who are coming into class late or are missing class you are responsible for the material that you miss.  You should make attempts to get class notes and follow where we are in the text by checking the appropriate homework calendar.

Also I know we are a bit behind so I haven't had time in class but if you get a chance I would appreciate it if you could take a minute or two and complete the Silver Chips survey.

As always please email me with any questions
