Mission Statement
Shakespeare Sports Theatre Company is at it’s heart a theatre company dedicated to bringing the works of William Shakespeare to urban audiences in the spirit of the intentions of William Shakespeare the playwright. Based upon First Folio text as a foundation, our productions are rooted in Shakespeare and his source materials and the context that he wrote his plays in. Seeing Shakespeare as a man who witnessed the formation of America, Shakespeare Sports also aims to bring to our audiences the connection of the information that Shakespeare’s plays carry through to our life and times of how we as Americans view what Shakespeare saw from his life and times through creating theatre on the other side of the rainbow of our ancestors creating America.
Pericles will be live on Zoom October 11 at 5 pm And it will be live cast on You Tube on Shakespeare Sports Channel

2018 As You Like It 

'The production provided one of the most authentic performances of English Renaissance theatre we’ve ever seen, with the aforementioned scrolls not only present on the stage, but highlighted by the actors as they waited for their cues, read their lines and anticipated each others’ entrances.'

Fast forward to around 2009 or so.  Photo of cast for a staged reading of Timon of Athens that I directed for Shakespeare Saturdays. It was my first time directing adults in the text. 

Before I moved to NYC I was cast as Celia in As You Like It
