Virtual Event: Inside the First Folio
Saturday October 24 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
The First Folio was compiled by John Heminges and Henry Condell, two of Shakespeare’s fellow actors. Without it, we would not today have half of Shakespeare’s plays. Peter Garino will examine how the First Folio came to be, its importance to our knowledge and understanding of Shakespeare today, and how the Folio is used by actors today in crafting their performances. A must-see for Shakespeare aficionados or those who simply wish to broaden their understanding of Shakespeare.
Garino is a founding member of The Shakespeare Project of Chicago and has served as Artistic Director since June 2010. He most recently appeared as Polonius in The Project’s theatrical reading of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark. He will direct Richard III in The Project’s 2019-2020 season. Peter attended the National Shakespeare Conservatory and holds a Master of Fine Arts degree in Acting from Illinois State University and a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre Arts from Hofstra University, New York. He is a proud member of Actors’ Equity Association, and SAG/AFTRA.
