We don't know when William Shakespeare was born.  He was Baptised as a Christian on April 26, 1564 and he died on April, 23, 1616.  He was probably born, spent most of his childhood and died in  Stratford-upon-Avon located in Warwickshire, England.  His career as a playwright was financially supported by Queen Elizabeth I and he staged all of his plays at the Globe Theater located in London, England.  Of all the plays William Shakespeare has staged at the Globe Theater, only one of his plays carries a death curse.  William Shakespeare play The Tragedy of Macbeth is alleged to be cursed.  Anybody who says the word Macbeth out loud, inside a theater, while either rehearsing or staging the play will be afflicted by calamities throughout the entire lifespan of the play itself.  Nobody knows how this alleged death curse ended up being connected to The Tragedy of Macbeth,  how this alleged death curse can be reversed or if the The Tragedy of Macbeth death curse even exists at all.  Whatever the case may be, allow me to say Macbeth just to prove that there isn't a death curse attached to the word.  Of course, typing the word Macbeth while typing out an internet blog on the computer isn't the same thing a saying the word out loud inside a stage theater while the play is either rehersing or being staged.  However, superstition is simply superstition.

While I'm thinking about the plays of William Shakespeare, here are some photos of the lovely and talented film actress Dakota Fanning.
