I wish Shakespearean drama was more like "Game of Thrones."

The last Shakespeare entry of the season might be the most anticipated: Kenneth Branagh and Rob Ashford's big-budget, site-specific production of the Scottish Play. Played out on a stage more reminiscent of Medieval Times than The Globe, Branagh's production — in which he also stars — features rain, fire, and huge muddy battles. It thrilled when it debuted at the Manchester International Festival. Good luck getting tickets.
