Comedy, tragedy mingle for Shakespeare at Fenway

BOSTON (AP) Five centuries after William Shakespeare wrote "Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown," the Boston Red Sox have been deposed as World Series champions, bouncing from last place to first and again to the cellar in a shift from tragedy to comedy that even the revered playwright would appreciate.

And so, as they head into yet another winter of their discontent, the Red Sox are turning Fenway Park over to the Commonwealth Shakespeare Company to bring a bit of the Bard of Avon to the former home of Josh and Daniel Bard.

The curse of "The Scottish Play" and "The Curse of the Bambino" will be as one on Friday night when the troupe performs a sort of Best of Bill, featuring 10 classic scenes in the ballpark that has always been more Big Papi than Joseph Papp, more Green Monster than "green-ey'd monster," more Carl Yastrzemski than Henry VIII.
