    Three cheers for this one, Rufus, and all you not-so-ordinary gentlemen. Bloom would approve, nay, rise to his feet to applaud. Western civilization ain’t exactally dead yet.Report

    Excellent work, but I have always had trouble taking Seven Against Thebes seriously after watching Hercules Unchained too many times.Report

      That can pose a problem. Personally, I really wish I could have seen the hip-hop version of Seven Against Thebes that was staged a few years ago, even though I heard it was done as a comedy for some reason.Report
