Title of Event: Bardisms with Barry Edelstein

With BARDISMS: Shakespeare for All Occasions, Barry Edelstein, a noted scholar and director of Shakespeare, gathers together Shakespearean gems for life's momentous events as well as the more personal, trying, or intimate moments. Organized by occasion and presented with lively and accessible background material, BARDISMS shows how to weave the Bard's musings into any simple and elegant speech.

In addition to waxing about the bard, Edelstein will talk about his work with the Public Theater and how a director is a combination of literary figure and practitioner.

Barry Edelstein is a theater director noted for his productions of the plays of William Shakespeare. In addition to staging many contemporary and classical plays, he has directed over half of the Bard's works at theaters around New York City and the U.S. including As You Like It, starring Gwyneth Paltrow; Julius Caesar starring Jeffrey Wright for New York's Shakespeare in the Park. He has taught Shakespeare at the Juilliard School, the Graduate Acting Program at NYU, the Public Theater's Shakespeare Lab, and in lectures and master classes around the U.S. and abroad. He lives in Williamsburg with his wife, Hilit.
