Bard @ the Bar
in honor of William Shakespeare
Directed by Roger Hendricks Simon
Monday, August 10th, 7:00 P.M.
West End Theater Bar
2911 Broadway at 113th
New York, NY
This performance will include scenes, songs and dance by William Shakespeare, featuring current studio members, alumni and guests from film and the Broadway and London stage.
"... an impressive group of scenes, using every inch of the expansive room, as well as audience members, as part of the ambiance... a ‘60’s style street theatre environment, (where) audience members wandered in and out and photographers documented the performance. Strict homage was paid to the Bard’s language, with vivid, highly physicalized portrayals by all. Actors of all shapes, sizes and ages were encouraged to share their talents, eschewing the youth-oriented look of many recent Shakespearean productions. Director Roger Hendricks Simon is to be congratulated for his dedication to the inclusion of all types of talented actors, and the large, enthusiastic crowd obviously agreed."
