Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) is such a treat. It’s faux crumbling interior is so cosy and there are no bad seats in the house. And they also send out a very informative email to get you prepared for each show. A mixture of blogs, interviews and production notes so you can make the most of the experience. Tomorrow I will get to enjoy some Kevin Spacey genius in his title role of Richard III.
So, I thought I better get some reading done so I can slip into the World of Shakespeare with ease. Fingers crossed.
BAM sent me this gem of a link. Start with Sir Ian McKellan’s description of the opening speech. My goodness it is fun.
