Description

“There may be more men in the plays of Shakespeare. Many more. But the Bard’s women pack a punch. Tina Packer founder of Shakespeare & Company, the renowned theater group in Lenox, Mass., and now one of America’s premier Shakespeareans has been playing and directing Shakespeare’s women for 40 years. She’s learned them from the inside out Kate and Cleopatra, Rosalind and Desdemona, Lady Macbeth and Juliet, Cordelia and Marina, and much more and put Shakespeare’s feminine side on stage. Now she’s brought the female roles together in her work “Women of Will.” It’s powerful." —Tom Ashbrook, NPR
