2008 Casting News

Director Peter Hinton will soon be featured in an archived Wednesday Webcast, during which he and Stratford Shakespeare Festival General Director Antoni Cimolino will discuss his plans for The Taming of the Shrew (2008).

In the meantime, there’s new casting news about Hinton’s grander undertaking (he’s the writer for this one, too): Shakespeare’s Universe: Her Infinite Variety (2008).

Matthew MacFadzean, Karen Robinson, Peggy Coffey, Michael Spencer-Davis, Laura Condlln, and Dayna Tekatch will be singing, dancing, dialoguing, and monologuing (and more!) on the stage of the new Festival Pavilion this season (July to September only; see sidebar).

Shakespeare’s Universe: Her Infinite Variety (2008) is designed to explore the role of women in Elizabethan England and Shakespeariana, especially the work included in the playbill.
