Led by Michael LoMonico, Senior Consultant on National Education for the Folger Shakespeare Library

 

For anyone who wants to truly be in the know, here’s your chance. Shakespeare 101—based on LoMonico’s critically acclaimed book-- is the ultimate interactive guide to the great Bard. Michael LoMonico has gathered over 150 lists embracing anything and everything about the world's best-known author. A witty compilation—a pretty foil for the Bard himself—you'll soon know a groat from a farthing and pick up of history's best insults, expressions (now cliches), and all sorts of naughty bits. Meet his most sinister villains, learn arcane coinages (boiled-brains, clodpole, and clapper claw), and find out why wife Anne was left his "second-best" bed. Shakespeare 101 leaves no doubt that William Shakespeare was and remains the master of the English language.

LoMonico will be joined by Laura Cole, currently playing Maria in the NY Classical Theater Company's production of Twelfth Night in Central Park and in Battery Park and Heather Lester, the Director of Education for the Shakespeare Society.
