There are still a few more acting company introductions coming your way this week. Stay tuned! I am so proud that we have gathered such a fantastic group for this project and so humbled to have the opportunity to work with all of you. You have a generosity of spirit that revives my belief in the value of the work we are doing. You have incredible talent and skill for what you do as well as boundless courage to take the leap of faith that is Shakespeare IN THE RAW. Thanks to each and every one of you. You are dazzling.

This year we have a special event associated with The Justice Project. Sponsored by the Law School and the Entertainment Arts and Sports Law Society, we are hosting an academic roundtable discussion on the nature of law, justice, and equity in Measure for Measure and The Merchant of Venice. We will present selected scenes from the two plays, hold a discussion with eminent scholars and law professionals, and take questions for the acting company. The discussion will begin on Friday, February 17 at 12:00 p.m. and run for approximately 90 minutes. It will be held in the Moot Courtroom in Belson Hall (2nd Floor) at the St. John's University Queens Campus. This event is free and open to the public.
