Shakespeare is as relevant as ever. Like Elvis, his genius isn’t always apparent, especially when he’s foisted upon the youth. But as patience and a thirst for learning set in, the magnificence of his characters and an appreciation of the scale of these productions finally hits you. There’s a reason he’s so popular and legendary. This work stands the test of time! And the blood, the intrigue, the sex, the betrayal, the comedy…it’s really quite intense.

We enlisted three great Shakespeare scholars to try to undertake the task of summing of Shakespeare’s brilliance in two hours. It’s an impossible task, but a fun one, which Regina Buccola, Peter Kanelos and Michael Shapiro pulled off brilliantly.
