Shakespeare in Action–a review

A guest post by Erna Taverner

I am happy to say that I was lucky enough to attend the Shakespeare Meets Hip  Hop  presentation, on Saturday at the new Artscape space at 36 John Street.

The space itself is very clean and new.  The theatre seats 150 people, and there was a wooden riser for a stage.  The background was a screen with a scene to set the stage.  The musical accompaniment seemed to happen by magic.

The presentation itself was very entertaining for adults as well as kids.  The audience got involved by shouting out answers, being on the stage, and laughing.

It was informative, relevant, and provided a way to analyse Shakespeare by looking at key words at each stanza.

I really loved it and would love to see it again.  They do it in schools during school year .

I heard someone say about Artscape  “This is great addition for Weston.”

  1. What about those that said this is what we get for $17million ?
    What about those that said how can the trucks get into the area for the farmers market?
    What about those that said such a small space considering what was built?
    What about those that said …community groups need to rent the space? you mean community groups need to pay?

    1. annonymous1 -the complaints you list in your comment seem to be about the building and developers and not the theatre company or the show itself. Shakespeare in Action is a tenant of the building – they are not the developer. Please direct your anger elsewhere. This is a great addition to Weston – we are lucky to have arts and culture in our community.

  2. This looks like a very interesting & entertaining event! I’ll be keeping an eye out for the next show & would love to attend.
