Where There's a Will: Finding Shakespeare

Pushkin Industries
Society & CulturePerforming ArtsArts

Where There’s a Will searches for the surprising places Shakespeare shows up outside the theater. Host Barry Edelstein, artistic director at one of the country’s leading Shakespeare theaters, and co-host writer and director Em Weinstein, ask what is it about Shakespeare that’s given him a continuous afterlife in all sorts of unexpected ways? You’ll hear Shakespeare doing rehabilitative work in a maximum security prison, helping autistic kids to communicate, shaping religious observances, in the mouths of U.S. presidents, and even at the center of a deadly riot in New York City. Join Barry and Em as they uncover the ways Shakespeare endures in our modern society, and what that says about us. From Pushkin Industries and The Old Globe.

    Thoroughly enjoying this podcast. A great listen for the morning and has me reflecting on Shakespeare. I wish this podcast existed when I was a student learning about his plays. I HATED Romeo and Juliet, but loved Othello - even wrote and performed a long poem of the play for a class project that got top grade! Anyways, I have mixed feelings about the guy’s work, but this podcast puts things into perspective. Currently sharing it with my friends who are high school and college instructors!

  • I wasn’t a Shakespeare person til now!

    Usually when I hear “doth” or “thou,” my eyes glaze over and I tune out. So, needless to say, I’ve never been super interested in Shakespeare because I didn’t see how an old dead guy could be relevant in my life or if plays from hundred of years ago had modern relevancy but this show proved me wrong! more
