Spotlight: “Shakespeare’s Ghostbusters”
The Orlando Fringe Winter Mini-Fest is happening this weekend. Among the shows chosen for the mini-fest – an introductory sampler of sorts for Orlando’s annual full-sized Fringe Festival – is “Shakespeare’s Ghostbusters.”
Yes, you read that right.
It’s a stage adaptation of the iconic 1984 film, performed in Shakespeare-esque language. Sort of like this:
“If spirits be the problem that troubles thee most,
Whom wilt thou call? The busters of ghosts!”
90.7’s Nicole Darden Creston spoke to co-producers David Strauss, who also plays Ghostbuster Egon Spengler, and Deena Ronayne, who plays the iconic green ghost Slimer.
Alas, they weren’t in costume.
Strauss begins by answering the question on every Ghostbusters fan’s mind: how heavy are those “proton packs,” really?
