Juliet: An Actor Prepares
How does an actor approach a Shakespeare play? And how is that different from the way you learn it in high-school? Actors have to live the text in their voices, bodies, and imaginations. They have to make clear and meaningful choices. No easy task. But no playwright gives the actor more to work with than Shakespeare. In this two-hour session, we will explore Shakespeare’s “method” and how it relates to one soliloquy: Juliet in her garden awaiting her first night with Romeo.
