Grantham Coleman to Join Upcoming RemarkaBULL Podversation

RED BULL THEATER today announced that its online offerings will continue on Wednesday January 19th at 7:30 PM with a RemarkaBULL Podversation, Much Ado About Benedick with Grantham Coleman. This event is "Pay What You Can." All of Red Bull's online programs are FREE.

The event will star Grantham Coleman (Much Ado About Nothing for Shakespeare in the Park, The Great Society with Brian Cox, Choir Boy at Manhattan Theatre Club, and starred opposite Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys in "The Americans"). He will join host Nathan Winkelstein, Red Bull's Associate Artistic Director, for a conversation, focused on Much Ado About Nothing's Benedick - a role he played to great acclaim for Shakespeare in Park in 2019. He will read an excerpt from the play and discuss the challenges of that particular speech (Act 2: Scene 3), as well as the rewards of playing one of Shakespeare's most charismatic leading men. They'll take questions from viewers, too. Advance reservations are recommended.
