Time to check in on Shakespeare.
Away from the glare of the footlights, the Play On! project is underway to translate all the Bard’s works into Present-Day English. How is it progressing? What’s staying, and what’s going?
We’re talking to Amelia Roper, Kate McConnell, Yvette Nolan, Migdalia Cruz, Ishia Bennison, and Taylor Bailey of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival on this episode of Talk the Talk.
