Teaching Shakespeare!

A Folger Education Blog

Shakespeare in the City–NYC, that is.

For anyone who wants to truly be in the know, here’s your chance. Shakespeare 101 at the Greene Space—based on my book– is the ultimate interactive guide to the great Bard. If you are in NYC on Sunday, do try to stop down. It is being produced by WNYC and will be simulcast as well. I’ll be joined by Laura Cole, currently playing Maria in the NY Classical Theater Company’s production of Twelfth Night in Central Park and in Battery Park and Heather Lester, the Director of Education for the Shakespeare Society.

Also, at the same location on July 15, WNYC will host a Shakespeare Master Class with members of Propeller Company from the UK.  Actors Alasdair Craig and Jason Baughan will take students through scene studies.

Finally,  on July 16, the Greene Space presents a Shakespeare Marathon–a unique blend of excerpts from all 37 plays of the bard—the comedies, the histories, the tragedies—with actors and performance artists from all walks of life. It is a sonic feast that you will not want to miss.

So much for NYC, now let’s see what’s happening with Shakespeare in your neck of the woods. Leave the details below.
