Two Upcoming Web Series Based on Mansfield Park and Midsummer Night’s dReam

The creators of University Ever After are debuting A Midsemester’s Night’s Dream in late October. I didn’t like University Ever After, which was muddled and a little dull with far too many characters, so I’m a little hesitant going into it, but I do think that college is a perfect setting for the madcap events, general insomnia, and obsession with romance that characterize the story, so on that level I’m excited.

Follow the Tumblr and subscribe to the Youtube channel.

And, Foot in the Door Theatre is debuting From Mansfield with Love on December 3! There’s not much info yet – “from Mansfield With Love is a contemporary adaptation of Mansfield Park by Jane Austen, and is produced by UK – based company Foot in the Door Theatre.”

Follow on Tumblr and there’s a website and a Twitter. This I am excited for 🙂

New Webseries: “Shakes,” a Modern Adaptation of Much Ado about Nothing, Hamlet, and Romeo and Juliet

Don’t tell anyone, y’all. I’m about to start ANOTHER webseries. Perhaps this weekend I’ll do a roundup review of all the ones I’ve seen recently, because it’s become quite the sickness. I can’t help it! There’s romance! Adaptations of my favorite Austen novels and Shakespeare plays! There’s easily-accessible viewing on Youtube! What’s not to love?

I just found out about this one, which is a mashup of Much Ado about Nothing, Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet,  with Beatrice and Benedict as the main characters, a journalism student and young lawyer, respectively, and and am going to start the first episode tonight!
