This Discussion is Sold Out.

How is directing Shakespeare different from working on contemporary plays?  Is there a difference between American and British approaches to the Bard? And what is “director’s theater” anyway? Join David Farr (director of the RSC’s Winter’s Tale and King Lear at Park Avenue Armory), Karin Coonrod (Coriolanus at Theater for a New Audience and the upcoming Love’s Labor’s Lost at the Public Theater), theater and opera director Mark Lamos (most recently Cymbeline at Lincoln Center Theater and As You Like It in Central Park)  and Theater for a New Audience’s Associate Artistic Director Arin Arbus (Othello, Macbeth, and Measure for Measure at TFANA) for a spirited discussion moderated by Shakespeare Society Artistic Director Michael Sexton.

In partnership with the Shakespeare Society. 

Listen to the Discussion on WNYC.
