Category Archives: Open Mic Shakespeare
Last month, we followed the Bard to a mysterious island in the Mediterranean! This month, we land in the United Kingdom---BEFORE it was united. In "Cymbeline", Shakespeare weaves a tale of two lands, Rome and Britain, who's respective people are questioning the relative meaning of "love and honor". Due to the play's length, we'll be reading the first half of it this month and the second half of it next month. Open Mic Shakespeare is an ongoing play-reading series brought to you by The Cleveland Shakespeare Festival. One day each month, we invite anyone and everyone to stop in and read a Shakespeare play with us, at a cool spot in the Greater Cleveland area. This month, we'll be meeting twice, Saturday July 2nd and Saturday July 30th, 2-4:30pm, at the Cleveland Heights-University Heights Lee Rd. Public Library, Meeting Room B. Like our classic summer performance season, entry to Open Mic Shakespeare is absolutely free, now and forever. Open Mic Shakespeare is BYOB (Bring Your Own Bard) - we'll have some copies available, but if you have a copy please bring it!
