James Shapiro on the "Voodoo Macbeth"
Flatwater Shakespeare
by
1M ago
In his new book, the always insightful James Shapiro takes a close look at the 1936 Federal Theater Project production of *Macbeth* -- performed in Harlem with an all-black cast and directed by Orson Welles. It caused a sensation, both positive and negative; it led to yet another flare-up of America's ongoing culture wars. From our friends at the Folger Shakespeare Library (which reopens to the public later this month!).   https://www.folger.edu/blogs/shakespeare-and-beyond/a-memorable-macbeth-setting-the-scottish-play-in-19th-century-haiti ..read more

A Dark Lady's Comedic Revenge in Talene Monahon's *Jane Anger*
Flatwater Shakespeare
by
1y ago
  FSC Resident Scholar Stephen Buhler really wishes he could see this before it closes January 8. That won't happen, but he looks forward to reading the published script and finding connections with other recent Dark Lady texts, such as Caroline Randall Williams's Lucy Negro Redux (recently staged as a ballet, Black Lucy and the Bard) and Morgan Lloyd Malcolm's Emilia. It's a wonderful coincidence that Amelia Workman, the actress playing Jane Anger for this production, shares a name with Aemilia Lanyer, the central character of Malcolm's play (also a historical figure, also a trailblazi ..read more

Armond Is Ariel? *The White Lotus* and *The Tempest*
Flatwater Shakespeare
by
1y ago
Our friend Austin Tichenor recently watched the multiple Emmy Award-winning show The White Lotus and "suddenly beheld the wonder of what creator Mike White had accomplished: transforming William Shakespeare’s The Tempest into a darkly funny satire of the hospitality industry." Of course, he had to share that wonder with the world via the Folger Shakespeare Library's Shakespeare & Beyond blog. Enjoy! https://shakespeareandbeyond.folger.edu/2022/09/30/tempest-the-white-lotus/ Photo: Natasha Rothwell as Belinda, Murray Bartlett as Armond in Season One of The White Lotus. Phot ..read more
