Thinking Shakespeare Live!

Summary

Erna Finci Viterbi Artistic Director Barry Edelstein will offer an encore of his program Thinking Shakespeare Live!, a 90-minute exploration of the language of Shakespeare, on Saturday, August 5 at 11:00 a.m. This fast-paced, funny, and altogether fascinating presentation based on Edelstein’s book, Thinking Shakespeare: A How-To Guide for Student Actors, Directors, and Anyone Else Who Wants to Feel More Comfortable with the Bard, reveals a performer’s approach to Shakespearean language so audiences may easily understand the poetry of the Bard. As Edelstein and three skilled actors demonstrate live onstage the methods he imparts to professional actors in the rehearsal room, this entertaining behind-the-scenes look at the creative process offers a primer on the tools used to hear and understand Shakespeare.
