She said it perfectly. #Repost @katherinebanos ・・・ As an actor, booking jobs is often more rare than common. Booking jobs that are artistically fulfilling are incredibly rare. Booking a role that you’ve always dreamed of playing is even rarer. And on top of all of that, to work with a director who inspires you, challenges you, and brings out the best in you is a rare gift as well. I am so thankful that I have an opportunity where all of these things are true. It is a gift I am surely not taking for granted. I can’t wait to play with this incredible cast for 35 performances and counting. Let’s do this thing. @shakespearecenterla #shakespearecenterofla #macbeth

The period immediately before the first World War and between the two World Wars was the heyday of the beautifully illustrated art book.  This book, a German edition of "Hamlet" published in 1928, exemplifies the cultural exchange between Germany and England during a period when the two distrustful nations weren't exactly seeing eye-to-eye. This German translation of Shakespeare's work was commissioned by an English-educated German nobleman and officer (and a friend of Jenny Churchill, Winston's mother), and was designed by Edward Gordon Craig, the famous English scenographer. Click the link in our bio to watch the full video. The Folger's copy of the "Cranach 'Hamlet'" is on display in "Churchill's Shakespeare," at the Folger through January 6, 2019. The exhibition explores Shakespeare's influence on British Prime Minister Winston Churchill's speeches, ideas, and life.

An eventful day at the @popupglobeau, where I met some "new friends and stranger company". First off, A Midsummer Night's Dream - a play which I have genuinely lost count as to how many times I have seen it - but the first time where I was corralled into a groundling spray zone and was on the direct receiving end of the first of four blood packs...and loved every second of it. Especially when some of the actors during the rest of the final scene were asking if I was ok, hawking at my bloodied face, or just generally laughing. "It is the most blood someone has been sprayed with yet!" - @tlcwingfield Second, The Merchant of Venice - where in the pre-show we got to speak to some of the actors and I luckily got them to sign my blood-covered tshirt which has now been donated to the pop-up globe pile (see second last photo). All in all - the Pop-up Globe is my religion and a big thanks to the extremely talented Buckingham's company! Can't wait to go back! #popupglobe #popupglobesyd #shakespearenerd #amidsummernightsdream #themerchantofvenice #buckinghamscompany

🎵 Blood, blood, gallons of the stuff 🎵 When Titania offers you a face wipe, people ask to take photos of you, and even the actors are horrified when they take the bows 🤣🤣 Man, I love @popupglobeau!!

Let’s talk tummies. Today is our first day of tech for Illyria at WSC avant-bard. And this is my costume. A crop top. In the past, I would have lost my fucking mind 🧠 I would have fought for a tank underneath or a different top altogether. I’ve spent almost my entire life telling myself that without a six pack my tummy couldn’t be worthy of a little sunlight. Now? I’m playing a fucking rock star and the Universe is gonna get whatever body I give it. #bodyshamingtherestheexit #masteryourmirror #bodypositiveworld

Shakespeare in Love was fabulous. As I'm a total Shakespeare nerd, the film version being one of my faves, and just that I'm a total theatre lover, this performance ticked all my boxes. The cast were brilliant, the staging very cleverly put together and the lighting created all sorts of interesting and atmospheric effects. If you haven't seen yet I highly recommend it. Lots of laughs with some lovely poignant moments. A must see! 💕👌🎭 . #instapic #instaphoto #indoorphotography #nofilter #photography #theatre #performance #performer #production #theatrelover #shakespeare #shakespeareinlove #play #greatcompany #greatcast #ensemble #nerd #acting #actress #live #brilliant #laugh #poignant #clever #directing #film #favourite #shakespearenerd #saturday #theatreroyalbath

Shakespeare - the OG of throwing shade, basically saying “your mum sleeps around and your dad is ugly” so harsh!

"What makes Peter’s work remarkable is that he doesn’t aim for clarity. So much commercial Shakespeare theater now... aims to create productions that are extremely clear in their rhetoric. It’s very unlike reality," says Ayanna Thompson of director Peter Sellars. Sellars's complex productions of Shakespeare's plays have confounded and delighted audiences for decades. On the newest episode of Shakespeare Unlimited, we talk to the legendary director and Ayanna Thompson, director of the Arizona Center for Medieval & Renaissance Studies at @ASU about Sellars's work and one of its predominant themes: race in America. Click the link in our bio to listen to their conversation. #ShakespeareUnlimited #newepisode From Sellars's 1994 production of "The Merchant of Venice" at the Goodman Theatre.

And for a last shot, I figured, since he brought us together, I should get a shot of me and my beautiful wife smooching under Shakespeare’s watchful eye. I think he would approve. Thanks Shakespeare once again for the influence you’ve had on my life and for adding another epically perfect day on our honeymoon.

Ok friends, here’s where things get real. The main reason I wanted to trek the 2 1/2 hours outside of London was to say thank you, thank you to an artist whose work has shaped my life in more ways than one. In high school I discovered I enjoyed the Shakespeare unit which expanded my mind towards classical literature, later in college I discovered I loved to act through Shakespeare’s words, which led to my eventual passion and exploration into the world of theatre and through theatre, specifically an internship at the Marin Shakespeare Company, I met the woman who would 6 years later be my wife. So, yeah, Shakespeare has had a profound effect on me, he still does, and it felt only right to pay my respects to his supposed resting place while here in England. I won’t lie, it was overwhelming for me, I may have cried (I definitely did) and I may have blubbered a bit (again, I totally did) but it was the realization of one artists work on another’s (in this case, mine) life. So, I tearfully thanked him, thanked him for changing my life for the better and thanked him for bringing me to the love of my life. It was an honor and I feel so blessed I got to say my thanks. Church of the Holy Trinity, Stratford Upon Avon. The resting place of William Shakespeare. #stratforduponavon #williamshakespeare #shakespeare #williamshakespearebirthplace #shakespearebirthplacetrust #annehathawayscottage #royalshakespearecompany #trinitychurchstratforduponavon #restingplaceofshakespeare #hallscroft #holytrinitychurchstratford #shakespearesnewplace #shakespearesbirthplace #ronaldgower #shakespearenerd #blubberingfool #honeymoon #mirkovichgettinhitched

One more from intermission. Forgive me theatre Gods, Mr. Rylance and co., was just aiming for another shot of the stage only to discover the actors hanging out in the center stage doors. If you look close, in the center, between the doors, in the red hat stands one of the best (if not the best imho) Shakespearean actors ever, and my word if he didn’t transform Iago into one of the funniest, most charming, vile, sympathetic and utterly human characters in Shakespeare’s canon. A real masterclass and I feel so blessed we got to see him in action within a wonderful production. In awe the whole show. Thanks for an unforgettable night at the theatre. #theglobetheater #shakespearesglobe #shakespeare #othello #samwanamaker #markrylance #andreholland #london #honeymoon #mirkovichgettinhitched #shakespearenerd
