El Kaiser and J.D. may be on spring break this week, but The Pop Tech Jam Players are back in action with selections from Ian Doescher’s recently released William Shakepeare’s The Empire Striketh Back. Like his previous work, William Shakespeare’s Star Wars®, Mr. Doescher retells a familiar tale in iambic pentameter — the same verse style used by a certain Bard of Avon to create some of civilization’s most enduring dramatic works. Actor and poet Francis Mateo returns to the studio to provide vocal talent for a few classic scenes from the beloved Episode V, as reinterpreted in verse. (And stay tuned this summer, as we hear The Jedi Doth Return.)
J.D. and a freshly tanned El Kaiser return next week with the latest tech news, righteously rowdy rants and (hopefully) helpful hints.
Until then, may the Force be with you.
