There’s this lovely website called “No Fear Shakespeare”. I started reading their side-by-side (Shakespeare’s text and a modern translation) text for The Tempest and found it to be non-simplistically, brain-candy enjoyable.
I say Hey! Take the Fear out of Shakespeare! Free Shakespeare for Everyone! And if this helps, I also say AMEN!

What a Brave New World.

This summer Milwaukee will experience, for the first time, free of charge to the audience …
SHAKESPEARE IN THE PARK
Created by Milwaukee’s Optimist Theatre and performed outdoors on the campus of Alverno College, our premier production will be The Tempest, starring Scrooge himself, James Pickering as Prospero.
Mr. Pickering is actively supporting this production and would like to invite you to support it as well.
We invite you to enjoy an evening of entertainment with us at a fundraiser to benefit free Shakespeare in the Park that we’re calling …
“BRAVE NEW WORLD”
“How beauteous mankind is. O brave new world, that hath such people in’t.”
