All the Stage's a World; and All The Players Merely Stops
Dork alert: how awesome is this? It's a map of Shakespeare's characters refashioned as the iconic London Tube map as part of the Royal Shakespeare Company's new branding. I love how the characters are organized on rail lines as villains, lovers, kings, etc. and when the lines cross and meet at stations (Henry V is both warrior and hero, get it?). Also genius is the little restaurant symbol over Titus Andronicus and the handicapped sign over Richard III. Shouldn't there have been a toilet symbol for Lady Macbeth to wash her hands in? Click on the map to see it in greater detail... if like me, you want to.
