the signs as eccentric Shakespeare-themed quotes from my theatre troupe:
  • Aries: Yes the wives of Windsor are merry, but are they happy inside? Are they emotionally fulfilled?
  • Taurus: Trinculo can't hold his liquor, that's why Stephano left him for a half-fish demon.
  • Gemini: Be gentle with Yorick! Or Ivan, or Lin-Manuel Miranda or whatever his name is, he came from Target.
  • Cancer: As if Othello would be caught dead in a onesie.
  • Leo: My father would kill me if I was in Titus Andronicus, but I would also give my left hand for a role... you see my problem.
  • Virgo: And we all know why scenes end without a set change? *unified chant* So they could relight the lanterns.
  • Libra: Make Phebe a lesbian! Make everybody gay! I don't care.
  • Scorpio: Try me, Prospera! *crash backstage* Oh, shit.
  • Sagittarius: Get out of my face with your Oxfordian bullcrap.
  • Capricorn: We can't perform it as well because Shakespeare only hired magicians for his troupe...
  • Aquarius: Ferdinand and Miranda are just Romeo and Juliet with heavy lifting.
  • Pisces: The Bard is witty, alright! Also a douchebag!
