jazzville skyline: “…shakespeare in the dark…”

When I was young, I used to go to the movies all the time…and I saw everything…

Lately, even though there are more movies and more theatres, there just doesn’t seem to be to much more out there that even looks remotely worth making the trek for, with the possible exception of the new movie “Anonymous”…

It’s a story that has persisted over time and memoriam, that the Bard himself, William Shakespeare, never actually wrote any of his plays…

It was always rumored that perhaps Sir Francis Bacon had his hand in them…then, perhaps, Christopher Marlowe…and, in later years, it seemed pretty evident that it was actually the Earl Of Oxford who was the true author of these works…

Due to the political climate of the time and the way society looked upon a ‘writer’ (heaven forbid), the two were not compatible and the Earl would have needed a ‘ghost’ to be his conduit…

Now, this conspiracy has always been a bit shocking to some, blasphemous to others, but, it happens everyday…

In Hollywood today, almost every screenplay is re-written and punched-up by, in some cases, more than a dozen hands or so, that, in the end, the credit on the screen is actually nowhere to be found in the film…

So why do it?…Simply because they need to…

They’ve been given a gift that needs to be expressed…and this ‘expression’ is why many believe it was Christopher Marlowe…

He was being threatened and was reportedly ‘killed’ at some point, but many believe he simply went into exile instead, possibly in Italy…

And, coincidentally, many of Shakespeare’s plays since Marlowe’s ‘death’ deal with exiles in, you guesses it, Italy…

Along with the fact that Marlowe was a playwright himself, and many of his plays resemble those of the Bard’s…

…this mystery, like so many plays written, shall continue on…
