President's Series: Shakespeare's Bad Quarto On Stage
Join scholar and author Zachary Lesser and actors from the Independent Shakespeare Co. for an evening of drama, audience interaction, and more than a few surprises, in a program that asks the question "What if you don't know Hamlet after all?" The Huntington holds one of only two copies of the First Quarto of Hamlet (sometimes called the "bad quarto"), the first published version of the play. Credited to Shakespeare, it has significant differences from the text you read in school or have seen performed elsewhere. In this fanciful and engaging evening, we compare scenes from the infamous First Quarto alongside the much more familiar version of the play. Together, we'll ask, "How did it come to be that the most famous play in the world has a shadow version we've never heard of?" Rothenberg Hall
