Happy 450th Birthday, Shakespeare!

Thank you for giving me more excruciatingly dull evenings in the theatre than any other playwright. (Many more indifferent evenings than exciting ones, I’m afraid. And not just in New York but in London.) In your honor, here’s an interactive game for LW readers. Could Richard III handle Hamlet in a punch-up? Is Benedick more fanciable than Beatrice? Is Falstaff craftier than Cleopatra?
