The Complete Readings of William Shakespeare will present every play, poem, and sonnet (along with a sampling of the apocrphya!) in a series of 45 staged readings from 2009-2011. It represents the unique opportunity to experience in performance all of Shakespeare’s masterpieces, including those rarely or never seen, in a way that hasn’t been possible since the King’s Men originally performed them 400 years ago.
AMERICAN SHAKESPEARE REPERTORY
The American Shakespeare Repertory is dedicated to capturing the glory of Shakespeare’s plays in the context of the repertory in which they were originally performed. Its productions will explore the unique resonances and discoveries made possible when the plays are juxtaposed against each other; against the other playwrights of the Elizabethan age; and against the multitude of works throughout time which inspired them and have been inspired by them.
