Smith says, "It's hard to believe, in the ten years we've been exploring these great texts, that we are only now getting to this wonderful early work. I've directed this divine play three times and can't wait to have a go at it for seven weeks with the great group in Greenwich.<br /><br />It's 1594. New to London life, Will Shakespeare's been amassing all the creative energy that propels genius. And he scored a direct hit with this young play about young people. The language is extraordinary. For 3,400 lines, passion pushes poetry to where it's never been before, and more than four centuries later, it still WOWS us!<br /><br />"O speak again bright angel, for thou art as glorious to this night, being o'er my head as is a winged messenger of heaven..." <br /><br />Oh that balcony scene...and the Queen Mab speech...the Nurse...the Friar...the culmination in the Tomb. <br /><br />What a play! Please join us.<br /><br />About Bob Smith:<br />Library Journal called Bob Smith "the teacher we all should have had to introduce us to Shakespeare." The Boston Globe called him "inspired and inspiring." <br /><br />Program Information:<br />The program is free and open to all. The Spring 2015 dates for the series are as follows: April 1, 8, 15, 22, 29 May 6, 13. (Film on May 13).<br /><br />The Shakespeare series is made possible through the support of the Greenwich Library Board of Trustees and contributions by generous donors.<br /><br />Copies of the play will be provided.<br /><br />http://ct.evanced.info/greenwich/lib/eventsignup.asp?ID=26769 Book Discussion http://ct.evanced.info/greenwich/lib/eventsignup.asp?ID=26769
