Apologies for my long absence from blogging; my literature classes this semester leave me little time for recreational reading and writing!
But today I write of good news for Shakespeare lovers on the East Coast, particularly in the NY/NJ/PA area. Spring has arrived, and before long, there will be opportunities to enjoy outdoor theatrical performances.
One not to be missed, is the 2013 Season of “Free Shakespeare in the Park.” Yes, I said FREE! Click on the link for details regarding the schedule of performances and location (Delacorte Theater in Central Park, NYC).
If outdoor performances aren’t your thing, or you’re itchin’ for some Shakespeare right now, The Winter’s Tale is being performed at Princeton’s McCarter Theatre from April 2 through 21. I have my ticket for the April 2nd performance, and can’t wait to see it!
One more production I need to mention, is The Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre’s staging of Othello starring Tony-nominated actor Forrest McClendon. I will also be purchasing a ticket for this play which I’ve recently studied, yet never had the opportunity to see performed.
Remember Hamlet’s words everyone: “The play’s the thing!” Go see a performance, and watch Shakespeare’s words spring to life.
