Our American Hamlet

The year was 1866, less than a year after President Lincoln was assassinated by John Wilkes Booth. His brother Edwin Booth, one of the greatest Shakespearean actors of the nineteenth century, decided to perform Hamlet on Broadway, a role he had performed in the past to great acclaim. A huge crowd turned up for the performance — but it wasn't clear whether they were there to see the actor perform, or to exact their revenge.  Jacob Fishel, an actor with a wide-ranging career on television and on and off Broadway, takes on the role of Booth. Presented by Commonwealth Shakespeare Company.  Learn more

Maria Schneider in Residence

Maria Schneider’s music has been hailed by critics as evocative, majestic, magical, heart-stoppingly gorgeous, and beyond categorization. She is known for her personal way of writing for her 18-member instrumental collective, tailoring her compositions to highlight the uniquely creative voices of the group. Her music blurs the lines between genres, giving her a long and diverse list of commissioners, stretching from Jazz at Lincoln Center to The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra to David Bowie. She is among the very few musicians to have received Grammy Awards in multiple genres. Learn ​more
