William Shakespeare used a limited number of themes in his works, to the point that some of his plays are almost identical in mood. For example: , King Lear , and Timon of Athens are all dark and heart-wrenching tragedies with Titus Andronicus Bittersweet Endings about great and powerful men who are reduced to insane beggars because of a single decision which was idiotic in retrospect.
Director-writer Franco Dragone helmed the bulk of Cirque du Soleil's shows through 1998, and has since struck out on his own. Two of his solo shows, Le Reve (2005, Las Vegas) and The House of Dancing Water (2010, Macau, China) can be seen as spiritual successors to one of his last Cirque efforts, (1998, Las Vegas), if only for the fact that they're all stylized fantasies that take place in, around, and upon enormous pools that can be converted to conventional stages as needed. ( "O" Le Reve, which was competing directly against "O", was initially poorly regarded by critics for being little more than a grim recycling of the Cirque effort, and substantial retooling resulted.)
Henrik Ibsen had a number of successor plays: follows up the political themes from An Enemy of the People , with a character from the former play showing up in the latter. Also The League Of Youth , who follows the same pattern as a sequel to The Master Builder . Both The Lady From The Sea The Master Builder and have themes in common with When We Dead Awaken Brand.
