Public Town Hall: Seeing Shakespeare Through Brown Eyes

Feb 25, 2021 - Feb 25, 2021 | 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Virtual Event by Pittsburgh Public Theater

When Shakespeare wrote and produced plays like "Romeo and Juliet," "Hamlet," and "Julius Caesar," he took well-known, beloved myths and stories and reimagined them to entertain and inspire his contemporary artists and audiences. Join Pittsburgh Public Theater to discuss the concept and creation of Resident Director Justin Emeka’s adaptation of "ROMEO N JULIET," and his vision for honoring Shakespeare’s plays and legacy by reimagining classic works to incorporate Black culture and perspective in order to engage audiences and artists in a new way. Mr. Emeka will draw from his essay, "Seeing Shakespeare Through Brown Eyes," featured in Sharrell Luckett’s "Black Acting Methods." This conversation will be co-hosted by Artistic Director Marya Sea Kaminski and Managing Director Lou Castelli.
