I recently performed the role of Gertrude, in an excerpt from Shakespeare’s HAMLET in The Simon Studio presentation BARD AT THE BAR an environmental collage of Shakespeare scenes, monologues, songs and dance. Conceived and Directed by Roger Hendricks Simon. Featuring current and alumni from the studio, Broadway, London stage, and film worlds. Friday, June 30 at 8 pm. In the Dining Hall of The Players Club, 16 Gramercy Park South.
It was an extraordinary experience and would like to thank friends, family, and colleagues who came to see this “immersive theatrical experience, just as it might have been presented in the 16th century, complete with songs, music, and highly skilled actors, all paying homage to William Shakespeare. Scenes from a varied selection of his plays segway into one after the other very cleverly, maintaining a good flow and storyline, interspersed with the occasional song or dance.” (Tania Fisher, StageBuddy Review)
