Shakespeare

Cincinnati Shakespeare Company, as part of the Shakespeare Theatre Association's Legacy 400 Celebration, is currently presenting Julius Caesar and will follow that with Antony and Cleopatra.

Sword fights and fisticuffs of all sorts are often part of a Shakespeare production. Staging those for the stage, especially as part of a ballet, can be especially challenging.

Staging one of Shakespeare's plays involves more than just the challenging dialog and fight choreography. Depending on the adaptation, period costumes are a big part of the audience's experience.

The Music And Instruments Of Shakespeare's Time

Apr 22, 2016

While none of his plays are considered musicals, Shakespeare did incorporate music of his time in many of his plays.

Dale Hodges has acted on stages around the world, including almost every company in Cincinnati, and that career has included her fair share of Shakespeare.

Cincinnati Shakespeare Company continues the rarely done eight play History Cycle (Shakespeare plays about kings in chronological order, done only one other time in the US) with the classic Henry V. Justin McCombs, who takes on this iconic role, joins Jim Stump to talk about the cycle and his interpretation of this larger-than-life character.
