Course Detail

Seminar: Performing Shakespeare/Radio Shakespeare

Instructor
Lewis

In Shakespeare's London, audience members referred not to "watching" or "seeing" a play, but to "hearing" it.

"Radio Shakespeare" is a new incarnation of English 452, "Performing Shakespeare."  The course will culminate in three full-length radio performances of The Merchant of Venice before live audiences.  A fourth performance, a Sunday matinee on the order of a staged reading, may occur at the Zimmermanns' Renaissance villa, Pian del Pino.  One of the audio performances will be broadcast live on WDAV.  Post-production, engineers will assemble an immortal podcast combining the strongest elements of the three recorded performances into one whole.
