I like Shakespeare in modern settings. Well, I think he probably works best in 19th century settings, like Kenneth Branagh's movies. But I'll still take modern over Elizabethan. I liked that recent Ralph Fiennes version of Corioulainus.
I haven't seen the Ian McKellen Richard III
since it first came out. I remember this really good stage production I saw of Two Gentlemen of Verona
that was set in early silent-era Hollywood. Plus, of course, Twelfth Night of the Living Dead
But Romeo + Juliet
is a bit too garish for me, particularly in the part where Romeo kills Tybalt.
