Richard III Act 4, Scene 4
August 21, 2014
What do Frank Underwood and Oscar Pistorius have in common? The answer: Richard III. Recently returned from a turn as the famously crippled monarch, Actor Drew Cortese digs down to the bones of this rhetorical monster. Drew descants on his process, the art of laying the plot one word at a time, and how to avoid louring in the role after the curtain falls. Come caper with us through the most unlikely seduction in Shakespeare’s cannon (hint: it isn’t the “Lady Anne” scene!)
