Re-Imagining Five Shakespeare Comedies, with Steve Reynolds
Thursday afternoons from 2-4 p. m. on Zoom
April 28, May 5, 12, 19, 26
I want us to consider why and how “A Midsummer Night's Dream,” “ Much Ado About Nothing,” “ The Comedy of Errors,” “ The Taming of the Shrew,” and “As You Like It” are produced for the stage. Participants should come to class familiar with the play from having read it or from having watched a live or filmed production. We will spend class sessions discussing the play's unique dramatic qualities, themes, and possible directorial approaches. Participants will have a chance to talk about their experiences with each play. Near the end of every class I will share how I directed the comedy.
