I was thinking about the trip I am planning to take to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival shortly, and it made me remember one of my all time favorite series, Slings and Arrows. If you haven’t seen this I advise you get it as soon as possible, lock yourself in your house, turn off the phone, grab your favorite snacks and hit play.
This is a Canadian series that goes behind the scenes at a fictional Shakespeare Festival. It stars an actor I adore, Paul Gross, who you may remember(or not) from Due South and Mark McKinney from Kids in the Hall. Oh and just for the guys who may be reading this, Rachel McAdams, the hot girl from Wedding Crashers is in it too. Each season covers one production from start to finish, the first season is Hamlet and the last season is King Lear. Shakespeare fan or not, I think you will love this series.
