Review for Shakespeare & Company, Inc., Lenox, MA, USA
I can scarcely believe that I did not train at Shakespeare and Company before I did. I've trained with some very fine institutions, but participating (not just learning!) in the innovative work and positive, constructive approach to developing ourselves as theater artists--while we quite literally lived and breathed Shakespeare--was not only great training, but also allowed me to bear witness to the way in which this work inspired actors and teachers to deeper and more personal exploration. I can't recommend S & Co more highly.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
A deeper, fuller understanding not just of the Bard's work, but also seeing the way in which training in this work truly help me to further own sense of artistic exploration and prerogative.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I'd suggest that S & Co could do a better job of advertising themselves in terms of the very, very specific and excellent training they offer, not just the work they produce. I feel like the training there could be a life-changing experience for "developing" artists as well as academics.
