This Day In History- Shakespeare Dies

Okay, so I'm a tiny bit late on this one... On April 23rd  of 1616 William Shakespeare, the poet and playwright whose name and works would reach the very pinnacle of fame in western culture, died. We don't know for sure the date of his birth, but it may have been his 52nd birthday.

For fun can you name all of the plays of Shakespeare in 10 mins? (I missed 8, one because I just couldn't remember the spelling.)

La Mode, 1880

My apologies for the lack of posting, but I am in the middle of moving apartments, and a show that I'm working on has just turned hectic. So much to do, so little time, not enough hands. In the meantime, what do you think of this lovely late-Victorian outfit? I think it's very smart-looking.
