I think I'd have to stage the play in a park, maybe.

It would be awesome cool to live in a hotel! Makes me think of Eloise!

I loved this book. I loved the fact they hid the play.

I would...yes, like Lorie, use a park. With very limited set.

The best part about living in a hotel would be the fact that I live in a hotel. Just the thought is cool.

I call dibs on the role of Ophelia.

I think the best place to hide a production of Hamlet would be inside your hat. Then you could take your hat off and watch the play whenever you wanted.

I LOVE hotels. I love the austere
impersonal quality of them. I find it restful not to have to look at my own stuff. So I like to keep my hotel room super neat.

Hmmm... I don't think this qualifies as hiding exactly, but here in Toronto this summer, they staged snippets of Shakespeare on the subway. I thought that was crazy/ awesome.

I would like living in a hotel because I could sleep in different rooms each night depending on my mood. I like choices.
