* Many modern Shakespeare productions will have the characters transported to a modern setting or just without period dress. Generally, a lot of people find it Narmful to hear characters like Shylock or Prospero speaking in the 16th century tongue whilst dressed in jeans and a t-shirt.

*** Parodied in ''HorribleHistories'', where the assassin says, "You've done it now, sonny! I happen to be very sensitive about my shag-hair!"

Added DiffLines:

* ''Theatre/LoveNeverDies'' has "Beneath a Moonless Sky", a song where The Phantom and Christine discuss IntercourseWithYou with increasingly ridiculous euphemisms. The review by ''Webvideo/MusicalHell'' replaced it with a downright {{Filth}} [[http://raphael2054.tumblr.com/post/67015088093/beneath-a-moonless-sky-new-improved-lyrics version]], and in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ZO1ih3Agjk the commentary track]], the reviewer leaves this wise remark:
-->'''Christi''': I think it's a testament to these actors' abilities that they're able to get through "Beneath a Moonless Sky" with a straight face. I can't do it. I mean, when I first heard the cast recorded version, I had to pause because I was laughing so hard.

*** The conventions of theater might mean that Desdemona's final speech ''should'' be taken as an internal monologue and not spoken dialogue. Shakespeare's characters love thinking out loud, and not every instance of that should be interpreted as literal speaking. Still, it's [[RuleOfPerception all too easy to interpret it that way...]]

* In the stage version of ''Film/{{Footloose}}'', the "Dancing is Not a Crime" sequence is one of the play's climactic moments, in which Ren pleads his case for the repeal of the [[DystopianEdict anti-dancing law]] to [[MoralGuardians the Bomont Town Council]]. Unfortunately, for some reason the composer wrote it as a ''[[PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy white-guy rap number]]'' that includes the phrase "party in your pants"... [[HaveAGayOldTime as a euphemism for dancing]].

* In ''{{Theatre/TheTwentyFifthAnnualPutnamCountySpellingBee}}''
---> "Blame it on you're Daddily and Mammily, 'cuz depression runs in our family."
** For some reason, this one line gets a laugh out the audience in most productions.

Added DiffLines:

** In one filmed version of ''KingLear'', the scene in which Cornwall gouges out the Duke of Gloucester's eyes is undercut by the presence in the background of a servant (who subsequently gives Cornwall the wound that kills him) who is so enraged he... rubs his stomach and pats his head while making a silly face.

* OlderThanSteam: Parodied in the [[ShowWithinAShow play within a play]] [[TheZerothLawOfTropeExamples in]] Creator/WilliamShakespeare's ''AMidsummerNightsDream''. It's narm ''InUniverse.''
-->"Now I am dead,\\
now I am fled,\\
my soul is in the sky..."
** Essentially the entirety of that play was meant to be narm through terribad acting.
