    And I would really love to have you go into a debate with this guy, who is making a false argument (claiming all you need are good actors) and making it, unfortunately, from the op-ed section of the New York Times, which means too many people will read him, and not enough will read you: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/10/07/opinion/shakespeare-in-modern-english.html?_r=0

    Thank you, John, for articulating what I have been thinking for years. And the end result of the academic snobbery which opposes this is that the whole world ends up just giving lip service to Shakespeare’s greatness, but without ever knowing it, much less enjoying it.
