Terminator 2 Joins Shakespeare Trend

by Dan Koelsch

At the beginning of last year, we told you about a fan-made movement to turn The Big Lebowski into a Shakespearean play. Now someone looks to do the same with Terminator 2. Get the details after the break.

“Terminator The Second” is a stage retelling of the classic James Cameron sequel, but with the words of William Shakespeare. The group behind it, the Husky Jackal Theater, is an independent theater collective based in Nashville, Tennessee. Using Kickstarter, the group hoped to gain $3,000 in donations to put the play on this summer, but as of today, they have exceeded their goal twice over with over $7,000 way before their deadline.

“The Two Gentlemen of Lebowski” has actually been performed since we originally updated on the play being written, so the precedent for this strange kind of fan fiction is set. However, the two projects are a bit different. Whereas Lebowski was simply written in the style of Shakespeare, Terminator takes dialogue from actual Shakespeare plays and mixes them together to tell the tale. Read a few pages here and here to get an idea of how it works, or just watch the video below.
