The Work of Shakespeare in Modern Day America

2012-06-12

As The Greene Space embarks on our nod to The World Shakespeare Festival, I, admittedly not a Shakespearophile, am struck by the question of how The Bard plays out in a 21st century metropolis.

Are the stories as enthralling today, as they were during the English Renaissance?

Does mastering this work still play an important part in an actor’s career?
