Hi JJ! A belated but still hugely warm welcome to the Virtual Shakespeare Consortium. Your projects sound interesting, and I look forward to seeing them - can you also post announcements/schedules to this group to keep us all updated?

As you all probably know, the Victorians were downright wacky about the Bard, and the 19th c saw the creation of numerous literary and theatrical interpretations and reinterpretations of the plays. That… Continue
