The above is the first one I found while trying to find out, exactly, where in Romeo & Juliet there is a funeral scene. If you’re wondering as well, there isn’t. A composer and writer added the scene in 1750. Both Elizabeth Arnold and, her daughter, Eliza Arnold (Edgar Allan Poe’s grandmother and mother, respectively) had, among their first parts, roles in this scene.

For your enjoyment and edification are Hamlet, above, and Macbeth, below. Can’t follow the game without a program.

    Romeo and Juliet is actually a comedy until the final act. Think about it.

    Well, duh. In Shakespeare In Love, he even says, “It’s not a comedy I am writing now” … *rolls eyes*
