To The Bard!

Standard

A wonderful post on Shakespeare and his 400th anniversary!

The Theatre Guild Newsletter

Dear Friends,

As April 23rd approaches, there are many celebrations for the 400th Anniversary of William Shakespeare’s life!  As a tribute, Channel 13 (aka PBS) is honoring his work!  He was such an instrumental and important person, both in terms of literature and theatre…and well, so many other things.

We at the Theatre Guild are so proud of our founder, Lawrence Langner, creating The American Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford, CT.  While it is currently not open, many lovely plays were showcased there—such as The Merchant of Venice and Much Ado About Nothing, both starring Katharine Hepburn.  And my (Philip) mother played in As You Like It at Westport Playhouse—so one could say that Shakespeare runs deep in the family roots!

No writer is more celebrated than The Bard and if you need any reasons why, just check out some of the Shakespeare inspired and/or written shows Channel…

  1. I went to the Ashland Shakespeare…hmm, it’s not really a festival–it goes on longer than that, but anyway, we saw Twelfth Night there and it was absolutely wonderful. I promised myself I’d do more of this. I’m rereading Beowulf (in translation) and it was the same sort of feeling. I love these writers. I need to spend more time with them. 🙂
