okay but since theatre was not taken nearly as seriously in elizabethan england as it is today imagine if fans of shakespeare had rocky horror-style call lines for his plays
I hope everyone screamed “you’re an ass” every time Bottom opened his mouth.
oh but can you imagine Dogberry after he gets called an ass, keeps turning to the audience and they shout back reassuringly that they totally remember that he is an ass even though it wasn’t written down
they make reassuring donkey noises at him. ;)
also, every time a character named Antonio appears, they have to shout “GAAAAAY”, or whatever the rough equivalent is back then.
oh oh! and when the storm happens in lear everyone has to cover their heads.
