Dear Science: Could my body include an atom from Shakespeare?
#ShakespeareLives—in you? "Dear Science: I read once that atoms get recycled so much through the planet that each of us probably includes a little bit of #Shakespeare. Can this be true? (And if it is, why is my poetry still so bad?) Where do our atoms come from, anyway?"

The Drama of Ted Cruz: A Little Bit of Shakespeare in That Speech? (Published 2016)
“Ted Cruz has reminded many of us of Marc Antony trying to thread the needle at Julius Caesar’s funeral,” said Oregon Shakespeare Festival Artistic Director Bill Rauch, who compared Antony’s artful twisting of the words “honorable man” to Cruz’s memorable use of the phrase “vote your conscience.” “The repeating refrain ‘but he is an honorable man’ so devastatingly communicates the exact opposite of the words’ surface meaning. "‘Vote with your conscience,’ indeed.” #JuliusCaesarOSF #OSF2017

Shakespearean Christmas Carols — Good Tickle Brain
Read at your own risk. Good Tickle Brain's "Hamlet The Danish Princeling" inspired a group sing-along at the OSF company holiday party, and it's already proving rather sticky. ‪#‎Shakespeare‬ ‪#‎HamletOSF‬ ‪#‎OSF2016‬ https://www.osfashland.org/productions/2016-plays/hamlet.aspx

William Shakespeare's Star Wars - Shakespeare & Beyond
“I was at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, sort of with 'Star Wars' and mash-ups bouncing around in my brain, and the idea just came to me: ‘Wouldn’t it be fun and weird to rewrite #StarWars as if it were a play written by ‪#‎Shakespeare‬?’” @folgerlibrary recently checked in with Oregon's own Ian Doescher (who, as you'll discover, does an incredible Yoda impression) to talk about the inspiration for his "Shakespeare's Star Wars" book series. ‪

Spelunking with Shakespeare
"The translation is not to be a paraphrase, nor is it a literal explanation of what’s going on. The translations are not meant to be replacements of the originals. Our mission with this project is to learn a ton about the plays and to create performable companion pieces. They are new plays in that way." Dr. Lue Douthit, OSF's Director of Literary Development & Dramaturgy, shares the vision for Play on: 36 playwrights translate Shakespeare with @howlround. ‪#‎Shakespeare‬
