RePlay Ep. 4 Shakespeare Summertime with Amy Attaway 7-15-20

Carrie and I are on vacation this week. We are getting refreshed, renewed, and most importantly Reading for our upcoming season 3 beginning August 5.  So today we have a rebroadcast.  


We reached way back in the archives to our first season and one of our very early guests, Amy Attaway of the Kentucky Shakespeare Theater.  If you are a book nerd like us, it just doesn’t seem like summer in Louisville without seeing one of the great free performances under the stars in Central Park of one of the Bard’s plays.  Kentucky Shakespeare recently announced that their summer season in person is canceled for 2020.  But in September they will present a digital season filmed on  the Central Park stage to celebrate their 60th year.  They also have been presenting all nine productions of the 2017-2019 seasons available for viewing on their Facebook Page and Youtube channel.


In this episode. Amy talks about directing last year’s history play, King Henry 4, part 2. To see a version of this on the big screen, you can stream The King starring Timothe Chalamet on Netflix which came out late last year.

2- Shakespeare's English Kings by Peter Sacchio
