Shakespeare Reading Series
The Corona Virus has forced the closure of all open shows and the indefinite postponement of others. Theaters are shuttered and actors and audiences across the globe are sheltering in place.
In order to keep the flame of theater burning, the Florida Shakespeare Theater is holding a series of staged readings of Shakespeare's greatest works and has invited Shakespeare actors from across the globe to share their time and talents. These live online readings give actors the opportunity to practice their craft and to share their love of Shakespeare with audiences via livestream.
This series is sponsored in part by the Frank and Susan Salinger Cultural Initiative.
