Over four nights (and only eight total shows), Daisey will explore the nature of our theatrical genetics by wrestling with the genius that penned Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, Macbeth and King Lear, revealing that the heights and depths of his gifts can teach us much about ourselves. From the sublime to the ridiculous, he’ll delve into what Shakespeare can mean to us today, and how this cultural religion shapes our theatres. Each evening is unique and can be viewed independently, but all four together form an epic oral accounting of triumph and folly told with Daisey’s dark and hilarious intensity.
