Happy Birthday, Tom Stoppard

Tom Stoppard

Happy birthday to master scribe Tom Stoppard–who worked on both Brazil and Shakespeare in Love–and whose play, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, is one of my favorites…and one I would travel long, ludicrous distances to play one of the leads in. And have, actually.

Direct link for the feedreaders.

For more evidence of how cool the play is–by way of the movie starring Gary Oldman and Tim Roth–you can check out “Questions” here.
