THE SHAKESPEARE SESSIONS
Legendary founders of RSC John Barton and Sir Peter Hall, who revolutionized the way Shakespeare is performed in Britain, travel to America to work with actors Kevin Kline, Dustin Hoffman, David Hyde Pierce, Cynthia Nixon, and Liev Schreiber. Barton has been acclaimed as “the Shakespeare swami” by generations of great RSC actors, from Ian McKellan and Patrick Stewart to Judy Dench and Harriet Walter. In a series of workshops he helps American actors unlock the text and make Shakespeare’s plays accessible to modern audiences.
