A Midsummer Night’s Shakespeare with Ryan Gosling
by Paul Lander
To prove that nothing is outside Ryan Gosling’s range as an actor, just add “Hey, Girl” to a line in Shakespeare and let Gosling do the rest:
Hey, Girl, to be or not to be that is the question.
Hey, Girl, this is the season of our discontent.
Hey, Girl, and friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears.
Hey, Girl, is this the dagger I see before me?
Hey, Girl, the lady doth protest too much, methinks.
Hey, Girl, if music be the food of love, play on.
Hey, Girl, all the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.
Hey, Girl, to sleep, perchance to dream.
Hey, Girl, we are such stuff as dreams are made on.
