On Stages



All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages.

As You Like It  act 2 scene 7  Shakespeare


If everyone is on the stage, then who’s in the audience?

… unless the people in the audience are part of the play as well.

Who’s buying tickets to this and how do I get paid?

note:  this Shakespeare guy is really hard to read sometimes.

double note: Does someone own the rights to Shakespeare’s works or is it a case of tough luck for being born before copyright laws? Today everyone is no Shakespeare!

triple note: only seven stages!!!! what a rip off!!!!

  1. Hmph, where does Shakespeare get off stealing Rush lyrics like that? 😛

  2. What would Shakespeare make of Second Life?

  3. p.s. If “Shakepeare” didn’t already say it, then “Cervante” might have.
    p.p.s. Did you forget espiences?

  4. Reading Shakespeare sucks big time. Watching it on stage is worse maybe.

  5. Perhaps he meant “stage” as in, “He’s just going through a stage.” He didn’t mean that , of course, but it would totally change the meaning.

  6. Thanks for all the comments!

    jamesviscosi: I agree! … but I’m living in the limelight!

    pannonica: I see “dead people … sitting at tables trying to contact the living”. hee hee!

    note: I am oblivious to anything called Second Life. If it’s TV within the last 5 years, I probably haven’t seen it, heard about it, or bought the t-shirt.

    David: tut tut! Shakespeare needs to be seen not read. At least there are women in the plays now!

    S. Le: hee hee! “All the world’s a phase. Thespians!! Phasers on stun!” hee hee!
