Carole Levin, Willa Cather Professor of History, will be a featured special guest on the “Shakespeare Live” program at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 11. She will discuss Shakespeare and the supernatural.
The program will be aired online.
The Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington has been doing the weekly show, “Shakespeare Live,” since March, as a way for people to experience discussions of Shakespeare during the pandemic.
Artistic director Simon Godwin and resident dramaturg Drew Lichtenberg gather online with special guests each week to discuss a new topic and allow audiences the opportunity to ask questions.
The discussion will be about ghosts, witches and magic in Shakespeare. Levin is an expert on Shakespeare and Elizabethean culture and history. Her books include (with John Watkins) “Shakespeare’s Foreign World,” “Dreaming the English Renaissance,” and “The Heart and Stomach of a King: Elizabeth I and the Politics of Sex and Power.” She also regularly teaches the course, Saints, Witches and Madwomen.
To ensure access, complete a reservation online or through the box office. You will receive an email as well as a reminder email one hour before the show, which will include a streaming link granting you access to that evening’s show. There is a cost of $10.
