This looks familiar...

I think so too. Here's why: http://shirt.woot.com/Derby/Entry.aspx?id=43447

but I wanted it the first time and I still want it now.

Shakespeare wrote plays, not books. They are not the same thing. The script of a play is just the blueprint for the performance. It is not intended to be read like a book. This shirt, IMO, is off-topic.

I thought it looked familiar! The question is, are the changes enough to be considered "significantly changed" ? The design has been improved Graff, it doesn't feel so cramped, and the font/italic variations add some variety. But, it doesn't really seem all that significantly different from the past submission to me.

Typography/design is superior this time around, imo.

Like the idea, but the theme behind the trivia seems kind of erratic. Goes from character insights to facts about the author, from contemporary trivia to modern interpretations, from historical precedents to theater superstition, etc. I think I'd like it more if the scope was more focused.

I normally think posts that start with "Well I'm so educated I disagree with you" sound pretentious and Jatravartid. But as a playwright, with a MFA in playwrighting... you're wrong. You're overly generalizing, and you're being diminutive about a form of literature because it also functions in a performance art role?! That's just ridiculous.

I have an MFA in playwriting too! yay!

(And as someone who loves to both read a play and see it onstage, I agree with you.)

So... I hate to be literal here, but when you read one of Shakespeare's plays, what's it in?

Also, if I take Lord of the Flies and do a public reading: changing my voice and delivery with each character all while moving in ways as to act out what the boys on the island are doing has Mr. Golding's work ceased to be a novel?

Maybe you should read more books before you post on internet forums. Just a thought.
