What’s GENDER got to do with it? FREE forum!


“If you be not of the house of Montagues, I pray, come and crush a cup of wine!”

~Romeo and Juliet Act 1 scene ii

Manhattan Shakes is is thrilled to be participating in The Tank‘s October Sunday Shakespeare! We will be doing a FREE forum on GENDER in SHAKESPEARE and want your voice there!

Sunday October 12th
151 W 46th St, New York, NY 10036

There will be scenes from our immensely popular summer production of Romeo and Juliet and sneak peaks into our switch-gender upcoming production of Macbeth.

There will be open discussions between scenes where we will tackle the big questions of GENDER CONSTRUCTS both in Shakespeare’s Elizabethan society and modern day, how these ideas have formed, how they inform us as men and women, and how we can overcome the stereotypes.
