Shakespeare Center of Los Angeles (shakespearecenter.org) has just released details for their firstevent of 2011, and it’s a biggie:

The Court will determine, once and for all, whether Hamlet was mentally competent at the time he committed the murder of Polonius before a Jury of 12 community members, including high school and college students, philanthropists, actors, and Los Angeles dignitaries

Deets you need to know: The mock trial will run from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. on January 31, 2011 at USC’s

What I’m watching on the web:

1. The discovery and rise of Mr. Ted Williams (see my previous posts this week for all the updated 411)

2. The premiere of the 8 part webseries “Throwing Stones” which explores the world of high school with a twist. It is written and produced by Bart D. Van Bemmel and Jason A. Wheeler, based on a feature length screenplay of the same name. In a nutshell, it’s “a group of high schoolers who have to attend Saturday School but quickly find out they must work together to overcome their differences in over to survive when students end up missing.”
