The second installment of the new series, State of the Theatre: Seattle Artists in Conversation will feature some of the region’s most accomplished interpreters of Shakespeare's works in conversation with longtime Seattle Times theatre critic, lecturer, and author Misha Berson.

Various Seattle cultural institutions are joining in on Seattle Celebrates Shakespeare, a year-long salute to William Shakespeare, during 2018. This panel will focus on what still makes the Bard’s works timely, and investigate approaches to making his hallowed texts vibrant in production.

Panelists: Seattle University drama professor, director, and member of the upstart crow collective Rosa Joshi(Bring Down the HouseTitus Andronicus), actor and co-founder of New Century Theatre Company Darragh Kennan (HamletOthello), Lue Douthit, longtime dramaturg and producer at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and director of the Play on! program, and ACT Artistic Director and frequent director at Seattle Shakespeare Company and American Players Theatre John Langs (A Midsummer Night's Dream, King Lear).

This event is free and open to the public.


This panel is the second installment of a three-event series of public discussions about the art and aesthetics of contemporary Seattle theatre, and anyone involved in or interested in the art form is encouraged to attend and participate.
