Shakespeare & Company has announced a new, free lecture series: Behind the Curtain, and hosted by Shakespearean scholar Ann Berman. Berman, who currently serves as Vice President of Shakespeare & Company’s Volunteer Company, holds a Master of Arts in Shakespeare Studies from King’s College, London through a program partnered with Shakespeare’s Globe. She will lead the series, often with directors, cast members, design-team members, or others joining as guest speakers, examining various themes surrounding Shakespeare’s works as well as other titles to be presented during the 2023 Season. The inaugural Behind the Curtain lecture will be held Saturday, Feb. 18, at 10:30 am at the Elayne P. Bernstein Theatre’s Jane Iredale Lobby, focusing on Romeo and Juliet, with an emphasis on how costume design can influence audience response. Shakespeare & Company Costume Director Govane Lohbauer will be the talk’s featured guest. The series continues:
* Saturday, March 4 with a discussion of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, to be staged at Shakespeare & Company from August 1 through September 10
* Saturday, March 18, exploring the topic of Shakespeare and Jealousy
* Saturday, April 1, tracing the historical source material that informed The Contention: Henry VI, Part II.
All Behind the Curtain talks are free, but reservations are required. For more information or to reserve a ticket, visit the Event Website.
