Now this sounds cool, I stumbled onto a group called Lean and Hungry Theater that performs live Shakespeare here in Washington D.C. But here’s the cool part, ”Actors read and record the plays in front of a live audience, with live sound effects and live original music. The recordings are then available as a podcast, Webcast, broadcast, and/or audio CD. “
They just did “A Winters Tale” this last December (2009), and prior to that they did “Twelfth Night,”. This year they have “The Merchant of Venice” scheduled for June 4 and 5, 2010 which I will add to our calendar.
I accidently stumbled onto them while doing a Google search and really wish I’d known about it last year. If you know of anything else like this, that’s Shakespeare related, drop us a note so we can pass it on.
Please feel free to visit to their site at http://www.leanandhungrytheater.com where you can check out audio samples and see their schedule for up coming plays.
