After a discussion of the history of comedy with the help of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, this course focuses on two great Shakespearean comedies: Much Ado About Nothing and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. For each play, we will do play readings of selected scenes, examining each as the blueprint for a production. We will look at the variety of interpretations in different film versions, discovering the myriad ways theatre and film artists explore the layers of meaning in these delightful and complex works. This course is for Shakespearean novices and experts alike.
Silver Member: $95; Gold Member: $85.50.
