About this show

Energetic and innovative, The Shakespearean Jazz Show reinvigorates and recontextualizes Shakespearean performance. Experience how the loose, improvisatory nature of jazz music can free Shakespearean text, allowing the feeling and intent of the words to be expressed in a completely new way.

The Nine Worthies band, which name is born from Shakespeare's "Love's Labor's Lost," collaborates with the ensemble, providing an unforgettable parade of Shakespearean sonnets, songs and scenes composed to original New Orleans-style jazz.
