Bard on the Lake - A Shakespeare Slam!

Bard on the Lake – A Shakespeare Slam!

Presented by Blue Horse Repertory

If you thought Shakespeare was for squares...

The cultural center's normal floor plan was reconfigured into a Theater in the Round so that New York acting coach Roger Hendricks Simon could make full use of that unique space to present sections from more than a dozen plays creatively interwoven into a single, non-stop dialogue. It was, to steal a phrase, a rollicking good time.

Actors wearing normal street clothes sat within the audience so that at any moment the man or woman next to you might - quite suddenly - become part of the action. While there were no sword fights, there was a midsummer's magic, a tender kiss betwixt lovers and rapid-fire action as the actors, many of whom are students of Mr. Simon's and who travelled up from New York City just for this event, played their roles.

Mr. Simon's famous Shakespeare Slams are not produced all that often so we have been mightly priviliged to have hosted this wonderful and singular event.
