Red Bull Theater Continues REMARKABULL PODVERSATIONS With Stephen Spinella

Red Bull Theater Continues REMARKABULL PODVERSATIONS With Stephen Spinella

Red Bull Theater today announced the next event of its special benefit programming to provide an opportunity for its community of artists and theater lovers to gather in the virtual space during this unprecedented time: a RemarkaBull Podversation with Stephen Spinella. This FREE event can be viewed by anyone through a variety of livestreams and on Facebook Live.

RemarkaBull Podversations are informal, online conversations that investigate approaches to essential passages from the Shakespearean and Jacobean canon―and beyond with some of the finest actors working in the classical theater today. Previous guests have included Kate Burton, Lisa Harrow, Chukwudi Iwuji, Dion Johnstone, Elizabeth Marvel, Matthew Rauch, and Michael Urie.

On Monday July 13th (7:30pm), two-time Tony Award winner and Red Bull Theater artistic associate Stephen Spinella sits down with host Nathan Winkelstein, Red Bull's Associate Producer, to discuss his approach to text and the character of the great melancholic enigma Jacques from Shakespeare's As You Like It. Spinella performed the role for Shakespeare in the Park in 2012 under the direction of Daniel Sullivan. He'll read passages from the play and discuss his thoughts on the text, character, and the evolution of Shakespeare. They'll take questions through Facebook LIVE. Red Bull will also be selecting a few individuals to appear as part of the broadcast. If you would like to ask a question and have the opportunity to appear, please submit this form by Monday, July 13 at 10:00 AM EDT.
