Washington Shakespeare Company To Repeat Klingon Performance

In case you missed it this past fall, the Washington Shakespeare Company is going to repeat their very popular night of Klingon Shakespeare:

“It’s very entertaining,” said Chris Henley, artistic director for the Washington Shakespeare Company. The company will act out scenes translated into Klingon from both “Hamlet” and “Much Ado About Nothing.”

I gained much appreciation for this project when I realized that Mark Okrand – the guy who actually invented the Klingon Language – is chairman of the WSC board :). That’s a match made in heaven. 🙂

  1. Now I know Klingon is an actual… language, but this reminds me of a class in which we recited monologue using random sounds. It was kind of amazing how powerful (and, of course, humorous) the speeches were, including one by Margaret in Richard III.
