Shakespeare (?) for kids

This is either a really good idea or a really bad idea. We'll have to wait and see. A British film group is going to produce six adaptations of Shakespeare plays, as musicals, for kids. Judging from the article in Variety, they will all be in 3-D. This is, I hate to say it, eye-popping news. "Hamlet" lends itself to a 3-D treatment. The producers hope to include a ghost that hovers in front of the aud's eyes, cannon fire that flies into the auditorium and a sword fight that appears to happen all around viewers... More.
