It’s that time again for another Shakespeare at the Movies segment! With such a huge variety of movies released during the summer season, I decided to focus on one that I am personally very excited to see. Inside Out is the latest offering from Pixar, and is being released today. Here are some Shakespeare (and Shakespeare-inspired) projects that the cast has worked on over the years!
Amy Poehler (Joy)
Hamlet 2 (2008) as Cricket Feldstein
Diane Lane (Mom)
Twelfth Night (American Repertory Theatre, 1989) as Olivia
Kyle MacLachlan (Dad)
Hamlet (2000) as Claudius
Dave Goelz and Frank Oz (Subconscious Guard Frank and Subconscious Guard Dave)
Dave and Frank have been performers of various characters from Sesame Street and The Muppets for many years, and have appeared in many Shakespeare related sketches. Here are a couple of examples!
