War on the world stage

War of the Wars

Guillaume MichelBy our theater critic Guillaume Michel 

       A funny thing happened on the way to the theater. I was going to see the Russia/Ukraine war when I found out it has been upstaged by the Hamas/Israel war.

       The Putin and Zelenski show is now playing Off-Broadway. Broadway’s new hit stars Nethanyahu and the yahoos running Hamas.

       Theater lovers can expect a really good season on the world stage this year.

       An even bigger and better show than the Russia/Ukraine War and the Hamas/Israel War is coming to Broadway that will relegate Netanyahu and the Hamas yahoos to Off-Broadway, which, in turn, will send the Putin/Zelenski show to Off-Off-Broadway.

       And that show will be — drum roll please — WWIII. Ah, theater goers on this poor puny pathetic planet, you are in for a jolly good season in hell.

Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player

That struts and frets his hour upon the stage

And then is heard no more. It is a tale

Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury

Signifying nothing.

— Macbeth, Act 5, Scene 5.
