O, there be players that I have seen play, and heard others praise, and that highly, not to speak it profanely, that, neither having th’accent of Christians nor the gait of Christian, pagan, nor man, have so strutted and bellowed that I have thought some of Nature’s journeymen had made men, and not made them well, they imitated humanity so abominably.

And I especially appreciate the “and heard others praise” bit. Because this happens to me ALL THE TIME. I go to see some performance that everyone is raving about and then start to feel crazy because, what?! What is that they’re doing?!

And on the flip side – I will see performances that blow me away in tiny theatres that no one’s coming to and never will.
