Something about the profile, maybe?
And maybe a bit about a certain style of jacket?
Regardless of the handsomeness factor, I always try to see at least one play each season at the outdoor Bard on the Beach festival. (I posted about the production of Macbeth I saw last season here.)
In addition to Shakespeare in Love, this summer’s lineup includes All’s Well That Ends Well set in India during the waning days of British occupation, Coriolanus seemingly as a traditional production, and The Taming of the Shrew presented as a “hilarious Wild-West love story, where two fierce kindred spirits finally meet their match in each other. Petruchio, the sharpest-shooting cowboy in the West meets Kate, the prickliest gal in Padua, and their throw-down contest of wills and wits will leave you laughing out loud as they bicker and battle their way towards a splendid, healing love.”
Not so sure about the last one, but the others all sound promising.
