RemarkaBull Podversations are informal, online conversations that investigate approaches to essential passages from the Shakespearean and Jacobean canona??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, and Michael Urie.

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.
