Howard on Shakespeare: Distractions by Shakespeare'sGlobe published on 2013/05/09 14:54:52 +0000 "Do lavish locations, sets, costumes etc distract or enhance Shakespeare's language?" Behind every Shakespearean production in the Globe’s 2013 theatre season lies a long history of acting triumphs, controversies, and conflicting interpretations. Every performer sheds unique light on Lear, Lady Macbeth, Petruchio or Kate; every director or designer imagines Titania’s magical forest or Caliban’s island differently; and every society has its own reasons why these plays matter. In a series of upcoming audio-visual presentations, Professor Tony Howard (Warwick University) explores key scenes, rival visions, and extraordinary moments from great stage and film productions from around the world. Tony Howard is the film critic of Around the Globe. Visit http://www.shakespearesglobe.com/education/events/pre-post-show/howard-on-shakespeare-stage-and-screen for more information.
