On Shakespeare’s birthday, it seems most appropriate to listen to a director share his ideas about Shakespeare and a production which is scheduled for several communities this summer. Shakespeare on Main Street began in Poultney, Vermont. This summer, however, its production of Henry IV, Part One will have performances in Manchester, Poultney and Brandon.
Gary Meitrott is the artistic director of Shakespeare on Main Street. Bob and I had the pleasure of interviewing Gary for our program this week. We had been impressed by his direction of Watson: The Last Great Tale of the Legendary Sherlock Holmes for The Dorset Players, as well as by a one act he directed for the same company. We were eager to hear his thoughts about Shakespeare. After listening to him we can hardly wait to see the performance.
