  • July 18, 2013 - July 18, 2013

A buoyant celebration of Shakespeare''s words colliding with a New Orleans jazz beat.

Energetic and innovative, The Shakespearean Jazz Show with ArtsEmerson reinvigorates and recontextualizes Shakespearean performance. Experience how the loose, improvisatory nature of jazz music can free Shakespearean text, allowing the feeling and intent of the words to be expressed in a completely new way. The Nine Worthies band, whose name is born from Shakespeare''s Love''s Labour''s Lost, collaborates with the ensemble, providing an unforgettable parade of Shakespearean sonnets, songs and scenes composed to original New Orleans-style jazz. Don''t miss your chance to enjoy the playful antics and soulful music live in The Shakespearean Jazz Show, a Boston-born project created by young artists from Emerson College and Berklee College of Music.
