Description

What do a lovesick teenager, a mad king, and a murderous noble have in common? Dr. Gail Kern Paster, pre-eminent Shakespeare scholar, Director Emerita of the Folger Shakespeare Library, and editor of Shakespeare Quarterly, will dive into three Shakespearean monologues from “Romeo and Juliet,” “King Lear,” and “Macbeth” as they are read live by professional actors. This is the audience’s chance to discuss Shakespeare with one of the leading experts in the field. Following theater closures, program suspensions and cancellations of seasons across the nation, Gulfshore Playhouse, Naples’ premier professional theater, is keeping the lights on with a new immersive audience engagement program – Artful Distancing. The free, weekly series of virtual theater-based content is designed to connect audiences, from the comfort of home, to the larger theater patron community around the country. The weekly program will air live on Wednesdays at 3 p.m. via Zoom, an interactive video and audio-conferencing platform that allows for virtual interaction in a group forum setting. The Artful Distancing program will feature online discussions with some of the nation’s top professional artists, actors, scholars and more, who will provide a behind-the-scenes look at theater making.
