In some random bit of spammy email marketing I saw the term “hidden gem” (and subsequent discussion about how to use this term in your marketing :)). Well, this week I learned that I like Coriolanus much more than I thought I would. It’s easy to talk about Hamlet and Lear and Macbeth and Romeo and Juliet for years on end. Something like Coriolanus doesn’t get nearly as much love.
So, let’s talk “hidden gems.” Which of Shakespeare’s plays is not commonly known, that should get more love? The Great Tragedies are off limits – everybody’s seen and discussed those a thousand times. No Dream, no Much Ado About Nothing. We all know about those gems.
What else ya got?
