Sam Waterston, James Shapiro, and More to Celebrate Shakespeare at The Public's Sonnets for the City
Novelist Téa Obreht and New York Mag's Kathryn Schulz will also offer insights at the Public Forum.
Sonnets for the City will explore the magic of Shakespeare's work with insights from the panelists. Shapiro will share his scholarly insights about the bard's beloved poems, while Waterston, who recently played the title role in King Lear at the Public, will read and offer insight on the sonnets. Schulz will discuss how the sonnets relate to contemporary authors, and Obreht, author of the acclaimed novel The Tiger's Wife, will read a new poem inspired by Shakespeare's poetry.
The Public Forum is a series of conversations and performances about ideas and theater, curated by Jeremy McCarter.
