Shakespeare meets ‘Back to the Future’ and ‘Mean Girls’ in the latest from Philly’s Quirk Books
Today is William Shakespeare’s quasi-official birthday, and the madcaps at the local publishing house Quirk Books, in Old City, are celebrating with not one, but two new movie-Shakespeare mashups. Get Thee … Back to the Future! is a bardification of the beloved 1985 fantasy flick, and Much Ado About Mean Girls makes strange bedfellows of Tina Fey’s 2004 teen comedy and Shakespeare. They sell for $12.99 apiece.
