Theater in the Time of Corona
Updated: Sep 29, 2020
Theater has moved online (for now). I am thrilled to be part of San Francisco Shakespeare Festival's trailblazing production of KING LEAR which can be viewed virtually, LIVE, and from the comfort of your own home. Peter Kuo, of American Conservatory Theater, dubbed this new medium, "Video Theater." I am playing the evil evil Duke of Cornwall and am having a blast gouging out Gloucester's eyes through the ether :)
Live shows streamed on YouTube every Saturday at 7pm PST and Sunday at 4pm PST from July through September 27th 2020.
Here's where you can grab the link to watch:
Here are some pics of my at-home green screen set up:
Here is what the composite looks like to audiences:
"I almost never write about how hard artists work in my reviews because theater artists always work hard. It wouldn’t be news. But perhaps the greatest gift of this “King Lear” is to see that theater artists are willing to apply that same work ethic to tasks that ought to be elementary: casting the eyes at the right spot, exiting a scene at the same time. It’s work that says, 'We still think this is worth it. We still think you are worth it.'"
