Shakespeare in the time of Coronavirus-At Home

Multiple at home Shakespeare Viewings Available

While there’s nothing that’s quite like attending a live performance, right now there are several opportunities available to see streaming versions of some staged Shakespeare productions that we might not previously had access to.

So, take advantage of it while you can.

In order to help you get your fix of staged Shakespeare week to week, Seattle Shakespeare Company has put together a schedule of streaming performances to put on your calendar. You can see shows from Shakespeare’s Globe in London, the National Theatre, New York’s Shakespeare in the Park, the Folger Theatre, the American Shakespeare Center and Seattle Shakes.

Also, to celebrate William Shakespeare’s birthday week, Seattle Shakespeare will host a FREE live stream reading of Romeo and Juliet with the cast of the company’s spring touring production. The live stream event will be hosted by Artistic Director George Mount with Education Director Michelle Burce serving as moderator. A brief Q&A session on YouTube will follow the event. (see
