Exploring Shakespeare's Life, World, and Legacy with Shakespeare Theatre Company's Shakespeare Hour LIVE! Upcoming Episodes Devoted to Shakespeare's Life, Shakespeare & Opera, Shakespeare & America, and More

June 17, 2020, Washington, D.C.: By popular demand, Shakespeare Theatre Company is continuing its online program Shakespeare Hour LIVE! throughout July with episodes devoted to Shakespeare's Life (July 1), Shakespeare & Clowns (July 8), Shakespeare & America (July 15), Shakespeare & Opera (July 22), and Shakespeare & Politics (July 29).

Each Wednesday at 7:30 p.m., Shakespeare Theatre Company's Artistic Director Simon Godwin and Resident Dramaturg Drew Lichtenberg lead an online tour through every corner of the Shakespeare universe. Special guests-acclaimed actors, visionary directors, and esteemed scholars-will be announced weekly. The sessions are free for STC members, season subscribers, and package holders, and only $10 per session for non-members.

Shakespeare Hour LIVE! is one of the elements of Shakespeare Everywhere, a new platform for engaging with audiences through digital offerings and innovative new content. While the theatres remain closed, STC's staff have been busy reimagining STC as a virtual theatre organization. Shakespeare Everywhere will allow STC to share the inspiration of the classics in homes throughout the District and across the globe.
