For those of you who (like us) just can’t cram enough Shakespeare (or birthday cake) into your lives, our good friend (and actor soon to seen in The Comedy of Errors) Rodrigo Beilfuss is throwing another party next week, and YOU’RE INVITED!
Some of you may recall Rodrigo as “Bassanio” in our 2007 production of The Merchant of Venice, and he also played the “Scottish King” in our Stripped-Down Macbeth tour of the very same year! AAAAAND… he just got back last fall from studying Shakespeare at LAMDA!
In other words: we think he’s worth your time! So go and see…
“Shakespeare & Me: Beilfuss Bard Bash – a Birthday Show”
Had he been an immortal Jedi, Will Shakespeare would be turning 450 this April.
Curiously enough, that’s also Rod’s birthday month!
“Shakespeare & Me” is an informal workshop/reading of a one-man show actor/director Rodrigo Beilfuss has been working on, which covers a bit of biographical history and fun Shakespearean anecdotes, as well as performances of key monologues and scenes from the plays. The goal is to educate, celebrate, and perhaps to shed light on the mysterious man behind the words.
As the show is as much about Shakespeare as it is about Beilfuss’s personal relationship with his works, some of the speeches will be performed in English AND Portuguese – Beilfuss’s native language.
In a nutshell, “Shakespeare & Me” is a theatrical project that seeks to explore the works of William Shakespeare as the global artist he has become: multilingual and multicultural.
ONE-OFF Performance on Wednesday, April 30th at 8pm, at Ace Art inc: 2nd floor 290 McDermot Avenue. PAY WHAT YOU CAN AT THE DOOR!
