Shakespeare References in the May 10-16, 2013 issue of LA Weekly

Last week’s issue of LA Weekly had a couple of Shakespeare references. In the section titled “GO LA,” for theatre for May 13th it says, “The Play’s the Thing” (page 30). That’s obviously a reference to Hamlet’s line from the end of Act II: “The play’s the thing/Wherein I’ll catch the conscience of the king.”

Then, on the next page, is a little blurb about a screening of Valley Girl. The first line is, “Valley Girl, the Romeo and Juliet of the ‘80s, was released 30 bitchin’ years ago last month” (page 31).

(There may very well be more Shakespeare references in this issue. I didn’t read the entire thing.)
