Tomorrow at noon WKMS airs the first of three one-hour specials highlighting the influence of Shakespeare’s work on American culture. Part one is titled Shakespeare in Performance. From WKMS.org:
Shakespeare is everywhere in America, including musicals, festivals, television, and the movies. The documentary explores how American Shakespeare has been shaped by the American experience. From the young nation’s earliest days, when an “American” acting style first took shape, to the influence of African-Americans on Shakespeare on stage, to method acting, to Hollywood, America and Americans—actors, directors, and audiences—have made Shakespeare our own.
