Move over Hamilton! Aaron Jafferis & Gihieh Lee’s Shakespeare: the Remix, one tof theREP’s most beloved touring productions, is heading your way. A hip teenage girl finds herself in a verbal battle with the Bard himself, while tacking some of the powerful women in Shakespeare’s lexicon. Students will experience excerpts from Hamlet, Macbeth, Merchant of Venice and A midsummer Night’s Dream. The peice highlights the power of language found in Shakespeare’s works and compares it with that of early hip-hop and slam poetry.
