Rufus Wainwright joins Shakespeare Hour LIVE! @ Online
May 5 @ 7:30 PM – 8:30 PM

Up next on Shakespeare Hour LIVE! is a discussion of Shakespeare’s Sonnets, featuring Grammy Award-nominated singer/songwriter Rufus Wainwright (“Take All My Loves: 9 Shakespeare Sonnets”). From the Beautiful Youth to the Dark Lady, this episode will seek to dispel long-held myths (and perhaps celebrate a few) about one of the most studied and most mysterious bodies of poetry in the world: Shakespeare’s love sonnets. Why were they written? When? And to whom and what for? If ye seek answers to those questions (and more!), seek ye here.

Future episodes will focus on Training for Shakespeare, Falstaff: Hero or Villain?, and Shakespeare’s Last Act with guests Alec Wild, Senior Director of STC’s Academy for Classical Acting at The George Washington University, and Prof. Daniel Pollack-Pelzner, Ronni Lacroute Chair in Shakespeare Studies at Linfield University. More special guests will be announced soon.
