(THE SIMON STUDIO and Artistic Director Roger Hendricks Simon invite you to join them for a celebration of Shakespeare's 450th. birthday this Wed., April 23 at their Drama Book Shop Theatre, 250 W. 40 St. from 6:30 - 9:30 pm. Participating associate directors and guest industry professionals join Mr. Simon (NY Shakespeare Festival, London's Royal Court Theatre and Yale Rep) as he directs his actors in a variety of work in progress Shakespeare scenes and monologues and as part of the studio's current Shakespeare Film/Theatre Training and Performance Lab. Later in June Mr. Simon and THE SIMON STUDIO present their annual Bard at the Bar - an environmental collage of Shakespeare scenes, monologues, songs and dance at the historic Players Club of 16 Gramercy Park South. The Studio regularly works on camera w/film and live theatre. It is designed for both those w/little or no Shakespeare and/or film experience as well as veterans who want to "brush up" and take it to the next level. All work is developed and performed with current studio members, alumni, and resident guests from film and Broadway and London stage. The studio uniquely combines actors with resident and guest playwrights/screenwriters, directors, producers, agents/managers and casting directors for industry/public live staged readings, performances and film screenings of both classical and contemporary new work developed in the Lab. Physical and vocal work, on camera monologues/scene study, cold reading, improv, audition techniques and private coaching are all included. Mr. Simon recently acted opposite Michael Douglas in Oliver Stone's WALL STREET2 and has directed and coached James Earl Jones, John Lithgow, John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Tovah Feldshuh, Bibi Anderson and James Woods. Now in its 36th. year, THE SIMON STUDIO is an NEA-awarded grant and Samuel French Short Play Festival winner. Admission: $10. donation to the studio's scholarship fund. For reservations: (212) 841-0204 or rhsstudio@gmail.com.
