Producers Daryl Roth (Wit, Bomb-itty of Errors, Three Tall Women) and Jordan Roth (The Donkey Show) team with Camp Broadway on March 7 to produce a special seminar aimed at showing kids that Shakespeare is hip.
The free and "fresh" seminar for 300 Tri-State area high school kids and college students takes place at 45 Bleecker, the theatre where Bomb itty of Errors is currently running.
The seminar will deal with Shakespeare's works and explore why they are being adapted successfully -- as with the hip-hop comedy Bomb-itty of Errors (from The Comedy of Errors) and the disco extravaganza, The Donkey Show (from A Midsummer Night's Dream).
Cast members of both adaptations will present excerpts from their shows along with the reviews of the Bard's corresponding original text. Attendees will also be able to experience the theatrical experience by seeing special displays of costumes and set designs.
