This panel on the intersection of scholarship and practical theater features Valerie Clayman Pye and Hofstra drama professors David Henderson, designer of the Hofstra Globe stage, the most authentic replica in the country; Christopher Dippel; and Jean Dobie Giebel.
Pye is the author of Unearthing Shakespeare: Embodied Performance and the Globe (Routledge Press, 2017). It is the first book to consider what the Globe, today's replica of Shakespeare's theater, can contribute to a practical understanding of Shakespeare's plays. Pye teaches in the Department of Theatre, Dance, and Arts Management at LIU Post. This talk is free and open to the public.
Adapted by Maureen McFeely Directed by Jean Dobie Giebel Part of Hofstra University's 69th Shakespeare Festival
Filled with witchcraft, betrayal, and ambition run amok, this one-hour touring adaptation is an excellent introduction to Shakespeare, suitable for young audiences. Performed on Hofstra University's stunning replica of the Globe Stage — the most authentic in the country.
In what may well be Shakespeare's first play, Valentine and Proteus, the "two gents" of the title, find their relationship put to the test when they both fall in love with the same woman. Complicating their pursuit are outlaws, rivals, a jilted lover, two mismatched servants, and even an obstinate dog!
The Two Gentlemen of Verona will be the second play shown on Hofstra's stunning replica of the Globe Stage. Performances of the 69th Annual Shakespeare Festival will take place at the Toni and Martin Sosnoff Theater at the John Cranford Adams Playhouse, March 1-11, 2018.
