The State of Shakespeare
State of Shakespeare Interview with Aditi Brennan Kapil and Liz Engelman
October 6, 2017
Just in time for Halloween… How do you make a 400-year-old laugh? (Tickle his funny bone.) Aditi Kapil and Liz Engelman are digging up ways to breathe life into some of Shakespeare’s (ahem) “mustier” laugh lines for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s “Play On! 36 playwrights translate Shakespeare” project. Aditi and Liz talk about teaming up on Measure for Measure, and the problem with Pompey’s posthumous punch-lines.
