Production Comments Edit

I joined The Pendant Shakespeare in 2013, midway through our production of Much Ado About Nothing. At the time, a limited knowledge of the Shakespeare canon made the material heavy, easily misunderstood, and quite daunting to me. While I LOVED Julius Caesar in High School, I was like everyone else, and Shakespeare felt like a genuine challenge.

I was lucky to be blessed with an awesome team who made it clear as crystal what those big words mean. And they taught me that the words of Shakespeare were born to be performed. "If music be the food of love, play on" could mean many things on paper; but from the lips of lovesick despair, they resonate in the heart of every man and woman who has at sometime longed to be loved. 

Shakespeare's superpower was his ability to see us as we really are, warts and all. That's why his words endure, and why they will continue to survive us when we're gone. 

In my tenure on The Wild Bill Variety Show, it's been my mission to make Shakespeare accessible to everyone. From the first time voice actor to the educated scholar, I considered it a success that the show resonates with a diverse array of people. We offer something for everyone. Romeo and Juliet: The Sitcom. Spaceage Othello. A jive'n Twelfth Night. And so much more. 

Come for the fresh classics, stay for the awesome times. It's so good to have you onboard.
