For the first time and for one night only, the RSC (Royal Shakespeare Company) will be broadcast LIVE at the Folger Theatre from: Stratford-upon-Avon, England! A great way to see live British theatre right here in DC! "Richard II" is the production being broadcast.(Happens to be the play that got me hooked on Shakespeare - a little serendipitous...)
A favorite quote from the play, and for some reason, the first line of Shakespeare I ever memorized (I think Jeremy Irons' incredible delivery of the line, back in the RSC's 1987 version, had something to do with it):
"Nor I, nor any man that but man is, with nothing shall be pleased till he be eased with being nothing."
Tickets are $18-$20: I encourage members to buy tickets in advance. I thought this could be a good chance for members to get together and see some LIVE British theatre, albeit on a screen! Feel free to bring friends, "guests" etc. It should be fun to participate in this one-off, historic event! The RSC Live streamed in DC!
