Fifteen years ago Paul Sugarman started Instant Shakespeare which involved actors performing Shakespeare’s plays, scripts in hand, in libraries and bookstores in New York City. Paul studied theatre at NYU. At Applause Books he worked with the editor on an edition of the First Folio of Shakespeare’s plays, as well as publishing other works about theatre. He felt that the First Folio scripts of Shakespeare’s plays provided clues for actors to perform the plays. Instant Shakespeare does the complete canon of Shakespeare’s work each year. In 2011 we interviewed him about Instant Shakespeare and other aspects of his experience with Shakespeare.
