Last spring, Associate Artistic Director Justin Waldman interviewed artists who worked on The Old Globe’s production of Hamlet: On the Radio. These interviews shed light on how the project came to life from the unique perspectives of the artists, technicians, and actors involved. Each broadcast was originally live-streamed to Globe donors via Zoom. You can now watch them anytime on the Globe’s YouTube channel.

There are no Post-Show Forums scheduled for 2021, but dates will be posted on this page when they resume.
Post-Show Forums are a chance to join an informal and enlightening question-and-answer session with cast members. Get the inside story on creating a character and putting together a professional production. Post-Show Forums take place after select Tuesday and Wednesday evening performances. Free; no reservations necessary.
There are no Subject Matters discussions scheduled for 2021, but dates will be posted on this page when they resume.
Explore the ideas and issues raised by a production through brief, illuminating post-show discussions with local experts, such as scientists, artists, historians, and scholars. Subject Matters ignites discussion, brings the play’s concerns into sharp focus, and encourages you to think beyond the stage. Subject Matters discussions follow select Saturday matinee performances. Free; no reservations necessary.
The Old Globe is not producing its Summer Shakespeare Festival in 2021, but we look forward to continuing Shakespeare in the Garden events in conjunction with the next Shakespeare Festival.
Shakespeare in the Garden is a series of informal presentations that enhance the Summer Shakespeare Festival experience. These presentations are led by arts engagement Teaching Artists and take place in the Craig Noel Garden before each performance. The Teaching Artists use an interactive approach to engage participants in understanding the play and concepts of the production, inviting audience participation with Shakespeare’s text and offering insight and history to attendees and passersby. Free; no reservations necessary.
