Shakespeare and the Alchemy of Gender
Visionary theatre artist Lisa Wolpe’s new solo show offers a unique celebration of the enchanting power of cross-gender Shakespeare.
Ms. Wolpe has played more of the Bard’s male roles than any woman in history, always to superlative reviews. An activist as well as a celebrated actress and director, Wolpe’s work speaks toward liberation from the “gender box” of expectations.
“Lisa Wolpe’s mesmerising performance celebrates Shakespeare’s language and shows the humanity of his writing… a celebration of Shakespeare’s humanism, love and life.” –UK Theatre Network *****
