sept 19, sept 26 issues

"Troilus and Cressida" I like that Lahr makes fun of the idea of "Original Pronunciation" of Shakespeare's English. The more startling claim would be to say flat out that we have no idea what that might have sounded like. How would we know? And, for that matter, how do we know what Beowulfian English sounds like? I guess there might be some argument for a preserved knowledge within academic study, but really?

"The roles of Hattie McDaniel" Basic, but interesting.

"Lord of War" I thought I could possibly see this, but the dialog in the online trailer is un-listenable. Painfully so. Too bad, seems like a dirty, controversial bit of business.
