“When I arrived in New York … I went to a movie called Caesar and Cleopatra, with Vivien Leigh and Claude Rains. A strange thing happened. I was overwhelmed by the beauty of the flowing garments worn by Vivien Leigh. They were tight-fitting, very form-fitting. They flowed with an exquisite grace. They had a rhythm of their own. I learned later that they were a special pleated Egyptian fabric, and that they fitted so snugly because they were soaking wet and clung to Miss Leigh. I also learned that she had become ill from being wrapped in them. But the vision was one of loveliness.” – Theoni V. Aldredge
Could you please list five or so Shakespeare plays that you'd recommend everyone reads? I'm trying to read more over break. Much love!
