Becky Koretz: Ye Olde Scandalous Talk Show


J. J. Vanden Bergh after John Thurston. Much ado about nothing [4.1 Hero fainting at the church]. Engraving, 1798.

Becky Koretz, a 2009 Folger fellow, wanted to highlight the discrepancies between what the characters Angelo (Measure for Measure) and Claudio (Much Ado About Nothing) say and what they do.  What better way to do that than to illustrate them as if on a Jerry Springer-like talk show?
