Black Tie International:
Shakespeare’s Imagery


Julie Taymor


Tony Award winning director and Academy Award nominee

Joins the third Shakespeare Talks event of the Shakespeare Society’s Season “Shakespeare’s Imagery” on February 25

Event also features previously announced Folger Shakespeare Library


The Shakespeare Society continues its 2012-2013 season with a third Shakespeare Talks event, “Shakespeare’s Imagery.” This event will feature a lively conversation and audience Q&A session with Director of the Folger Shakespeare Library Michael Witmore and visionary stage and screen director Julie Taymor for a fascinating conversation about Shakespeare's imagery - both the poetic figures within the characters' language and the striking and powerful stage pictures created in live performance. Complimentary wine will be served afterwards.

Shakespeare Talks is a new series of intimate events, aimed at opening up the conversation about Shakespeare with the audience and colleagues in the theatrical, academic, and educational fields. A more interactive evening, the onstage conversations will lead to a question and answer session with the audience and feature a post show reception with the participants. The Shakespeare Talks series is in partnership with The Pearl Theatre Company.

Tickets are $18 for Public & $15 for Shakespeare Society Members & The Pearl Theatre Company Subscribers
