Dear theatre friends,
I’m happy to pass along these lovely offers by our friends across the pond:
From Shakespeare’s venerable Globe Theatre, only until Sunday, the 19th, is “Hamlet.” Here’s a review of the 2018 production, directed by the then-new artistic director, Michelle Terry, published in The Independent.
Every two weeks, there’ll be a new Shakespeare available. Next, “Romeo and Juliet.” Just scroll down on the Globe site to see the whole program(me) and mark your calendars.
You have only until the 19th to see “Drawing the Line” from Hampstead Theatre at Home, about the 1947 partition, optimistically creating two self-governing countries, India and Pakistan.
In 2018, perhaps you saw “Pass Over” by Antoinette Nwandu at Claire Tow, Lincoln Center. Spike Lee obviously did, because he then made it into a movingfilm, streamingon Prime Video– which theatre aficionado Florine Dorfmann told me about.
If you know of other good adaptations of plays — please let me know. In lieu of the real thing, a well made movie will do!
I’d like to continue to write because so many have expressed their enjoyment of reading– but I must have content! Do try to recall a story you’d like me to post.
No matter how bleak the current theatre scene looks — remember, we’re all in this together!
