Speaking of Shakespeare
As part of our educational outreach, the Theatre Arts Committee presents Speaking of Shakespeare. This program is dedicated to bringing actors, writers, directors, producers, critics and scholars to The National Arts Club in order to discuss the work of history's greatest English writer, William Shakespeare, and his continuing impact. A main focus has been intimate discussions with great classical actors talking about Shakespeare in performance.
Speaking of Shakespeare is presented by John F. Andrews, President of the Shakespeare Guild, in conjunction with the Theatre Arts Committee.
