Thinking Shakespeare Live!

Old Globe Theatre, Balboa Park, San Diego


Erna Finci Viterbi Artistic Director Barry Edelstein will offer an encore of his program Thinking Shakespeare Live!, a 90-minute exploration of the language of Shakespeare, on Saturday, June 8 at 11:00 a.m. Drawn from Edelstein’s approachable and inviting book Thinking Shakespeare: A How-To Guide for Student Actors, Directors, and Anyone Else Who Wants to Feel More Comfortable with the Bard, Thinking Shakespeare Live! will feature Edelstein, who will be joined by three professional classical actors. Immediately after the event, Edelstein will sign copies of Thinking Shakespeare, which will be available for purchase at the theatre.

This program is part of a milestone celebration in Globe history surrounding a once-in-a-generation event, as The Old Globe becomes the 11th theatre company nationwide to complete Shakespeare’s canon with Henry 6, a new two-play adaptation of Henry VI, Parts I, II, and III, directed and adapted by Edelstein, as part of the Globe’s 2024 Summer Shakespeare Festival.

This program is an ideal introduction to Shakespeare for families and young audiences, as well as an exciting new look at the playwright for Bardophiles. Edelstein has performed Thinking Shakespeare Live! across the country, including at the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington DC.

Admission/Cost: $10 - $15
