Our partner – the Irondale Ensemble Project – is currently producing a show entitled “1599” which was reviewed in the NYTimes! Just Act NYC’s Lead Artist, Joey Collins, plays some of Shakespeare’s most iconic characters, including Marc Antony and Hamlet.
“In between [the edited versions of many of Shakespeare’s plays], the actors and audience members migrate from space to space within the cavernous theater…there is the persistent sense that the spectators are meant to be not only onlookers but also witnesses.
…There is a striking intimacy to that, a kind that only occurs in the theater.”
