Lectures

Shakespeare and Southampton
Stephen Greenblatt
The relationship between Shakespeare and the androgynous Earl of Southampton has long been a subject of speculation and conjecture. In this illuminating evening of performance and commentary, Harvard University professor and bestselling author of Will in the World, Stephen Greenblatt, will examine the connections, real and hypothetical, between the Bard and his young friend, whose astonishing portrait will be on display alongside Shakespeare's at the Morgan. Actors Richard Easton and Michael Cumpsty will read selections from the Sonnets and the two poems Shakespeare dedicated to Southampton, Venus and Adonis and The Rape of Lucrece. Presented in collaboration with The Shakespeare Society.
Wednesday, March 23, 2011, 7 p.m.

Tickets: $20 for Non-Members; $15 for Morgan, Shakespeare Society, and English-Speaking Union Members
*The exhibition The Changing Face of William Shakespeare will be open at 6 p.m. especially for program attendees.
SOLD OUT
