      @@nancythomas5387 Also, his part is just inherently comedic/sad. The character he plays is the "classic fat ugly chick nobody is attracted to" in the play. The "comedy" is that with all these magic spells flying around, hitting the wrong people at the wrong time, it's gotten to the point that everyone's love interest and spouse is now in love with this poor girl who is used to being ignored or bullied for her appearance, just to suddenly find these athletes and magical hotties all want her sexy lumps for no reason. She's convinced that they're bullying her in some weird way. 🥺👍😅
      So she yells at them for doing it.
      Like I said: it's sad and funny. 🤣👍

    in a really weird way i think that zachs whole personality and affectation actually really really works perfectly with shakespeares writing like i think the silly sarcastic tone he always do really fits with the dirty playful smart alecy language and meanung behind most of shakespeares work, way more than the british soft monologue we see so often, i think shakespeare is best when it is spoken as a real person and maybe an overexageration of a real person like zach does in these videos

      I was lucky enough to get 'Playing Shakespeare' on DVD while I was studying Shakespeare at university. Well, it was just after I'd done the subject, I think, but it was really interesting and useful. More for acting, but it all came together with what I'd learned at uni. I highly recommend it, if you're able to find it! There were 9 episodes, and it was done by the RSC.

      I didn't like Shakespeare until I had an English teacher who was really into theater so her solution was to spend an entire semester getting each of her 4 classes to produce and act in 4 different plays and then perform them for the school at the end of the year. She simplified some of the language and shortened the plays a bit so 13-year-olds could handle it, but we still had to memorize a good chunk of classic Shakespeare. It made the material a lot more accessible to all of us. I still struggle to understand the slang but I know that my ability to enjoy it can 100% be credited to her.

    This video really highlights the difference in strengths among the three.
    Keith is a performer at heart. He works best on stage, interacting with partners and audience. Zach is stronger behind the scenes, but he's a personality on stage. His acting is just himself, he doesn't put on a character. He's self-conscious, but wants to put on the best show possible bc he's a filmmaker, he has an outcome to achieve. Eugene is a chameleon, he's an artist, he does both bc hes passionate about the entire process. I think Eugene also gets self-conscious, but hes good at masking through it.
    I love seeing these guys grow! Can't wait for the show!

    Wow, as a Shakespeare enthusiast I love this. And Eugene was amazing and I feel like he would do great in theater acting. It may have been a short monologue but you could feel the emotion.

    My lit degree just ate this up 🥰 I’m not a Romeo and Juliet fan, but I’ve already bought tickets. Very excited.
    This whole project just makes me want to reread MacBeth and Othello 😂

    One of my favorite PBS series is Shakespeare Uncovered. Different actors delve into the different plays and break down what the play is, the history of the play, and how it relates to contemporary life. I absolutely suggest y’all watch it!
    Joseph Fiennes hosts the Romeo & Juliet episode. :)

    I've been getting back into Shakespeare lately and I'm kind of blown away by how well those monologues were done??? Between this and Abigail Thorne's play I'm starting to think youtubers are like, the perfect fit for 2020s Shakespeare adaptation.
    Now I want to check out that teacher's stuff too, she was amazing!

    I am shocked that this is Eugene's first performance regarding Shakespeare. I would have assumed he had major Shakespeare actor cred. I have already purchased my ticket. I have never giggled during Romeo and Juliet before so I am looking forward to this unique experience. Spoiler, when I saw this play performed during a school trip, I almost cried. I had to bite the inside of my mouth to hold it together. Middle school was a nightmare, so giving classmates an actual reason to tease me was not in my mission statement.

    I love the theatre, especially Shakespeare, and I've been a fan of the Try Guys for years so I would really, really love to watch this performance but due to the time difference where I live and work commitments, I can't. But it is a truly unique idea, and if this video is anything to go by, the three of you will be absolutely amazing. Congratulations on bringing such an ambitious project to life.

    Honestly, Zach playing DIRECTLY to the audience was much of what Shakespeare did with his clown characters and I think old Willy would have LOVED it! He got his audience to laugh and that was his goal. 🥳

    So happy you're all getting to speak and perform some Shakespeare!!! I acted in Shakespeare plays all through middle and high school. Both hearing the words (they actually used to call it "hearing" plays rather than "seeing" in his time) and getting to speak them yourself does wonders for appreciating it and navigating it. I am STOKED for your performance!

  • @charlottedanis470
    @charlottedanis470 4 miesięcy temu +1

    I did Shakespeare plays all four years at high school. This video reminded me of those times and how much fun they were. Also, I'm 100% with Eugene about loving language and munching on words. That was always one of the things I loved about Shakespeare 😊
