Speaking of Shakespeare
With Louis Scheeder of NYU’s
Tisch School of the Arts

Wednesday, October 5
8:00 PM

We hope you'll join us for a wide-ranging conversation with one of America's most influential directors and theatre instructors. Louis Scheeder teaches at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. He founded and now oversees NYU's Classical Studio, an advanced training program in the Department of Drama, and he also serves as Associate Dean of Faculty. During the 1970s Mr. Scheeder won plaudits as Producer of the Folger Theatre Group, a vibrant company that performed both Renaissance classics and cutting-edge contemporary works on an Elizabethan stage that became one of the most dynamic venues on Capitol Hil in Washington.  Mr. Scheeeder has worked with the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-upon- Avon and with The Factory in London, and he conducts workshops in settings such as California's Huntington Library. Among other things, he is now making sure that today's students become familiar with “Original Practices” of the kind that have been popularized by Mark Rylance and his colleagues at Shakespeare’s Globe on the Bankside. As a producer, Mr. Scheeder has delighted audiences with three Off-Broadway shows, among them Amlin Gray’s Obie-winning How I Got That Story. He has contributed two chapters to a volume about Training of the American Actor. And in collaboration with his NYU colleague Shane Ann Younts, he has compiled All the Words on Stage: A Complete Pronunciation Dictionary for the Plays of William Shakespeare. He'll converse with John Andrews of the Shakespeare Guild.

No RSVP required. This event is free and open to the public. Seating is assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis.
