"Shakespearean Shenanigans," by Jeffrey Wechsler

Constructor's Comments

One of my favorite crossword theme gimmicks is the addition of a word of three or more letters into an existing phrase to create a new (and hopefully humorous) phrase.  It's nice when a phrase presents itself unexpectedly as such a source, and THERE'S THE RUB popped into my consciousness as potential theme material.  For me, inserting three or more letters into a phrase is more interesting and challenging than adding just one or two letters—and when it works, it's quite satisfying.  I hope solvers also receive satisfaction from this puzzle.
