Being Shakespeare

Oct 7, 2016 @ 7:30 pm  —  Oct 15, 2016 @ 7:30pm

Seven Stages Shakespeare Company in collaboration with Artists’ Collaborative Theatre Of New England (ACT ONE) presents the first U.S. production of the highly praised new play BEING SHAKESPEARE by the preeminient Shakespearean scholar, Jonathan Bate. This inventive work draws from Shakespeare’s plays and poems to further understand just who “the soul of his age” was (and what that age looked like). Highly acclaimed actor Joel Colodner brings to life an aging Lear, Hamlet torn between revenge and doubt, ambitious Macbeth, flawess Henry V ~ all while yearning to get closer to the man moving the quill.

Starring Joel Colodner*
Directed by Dan Beaulieu

FREE FOR ALL, Or Pay What You Will seating available at the theater 10 minutes prior to each show.
$14-$20 for guaranteed seating via ACT ONE website.
