    O God, he died yesterday, April 23rd. 400 years ago, but yet, I wasn't aware! I am devastated.
    I had a feeling, though, yesterday, when I attended a play A Behanding in Spokane at one of Belgrade theaters. Written by Martin McDongahs, of course translated in Serbian under boring title "Hand".
    Here is the review of Broadway version, with Cristpher Walken>>>

    And I had strange feeling that something terrible was going to happen, specially during the scene when two handcuffed tricksters tried to extinguish a candle with a fuse connected to a bucket with gasoline.
    They threw their shoes on the candle, and I was sitting in I row and was so close to that candle.
    I think the "Toby"character was trowing his shoes deliberately clumsy so as not to hit by chance one of us in 1st row...
    And I thought of Shakespeare, what kind of shoes was he wearing, maybe Star Converse sneakers or sandals or something else, and I felt something went wrong.
    And now I learned - Shakespeare passed away 400 years and 1 day ago.
    Tragedy.

    There's an open air theatre in Regents Park (London) which is one of the best places in the world to watch Shakespeare. (The food outside though isn't great).
