Lovely, fluid, warm, and personal weaving of stories and memories with Shakespeare sonnets beautifully recited. Now I want to see the full Shakespearean play with Ms. Redgrave. What incredible talent. And so lovely to meet her afterward. This was a theatrical treat!

Just brilliant. Lynn Redgrave is an amazing storyteller, and her ability to shift characters in Shakespearean plays in split seconds and make them distinct and interesting, all while weaving Shakespeare's dialogue into stories about her mother,...continued
Lynn Redgrave stars in a one-woman show, which pays tribute to her mother, actress Rachel Kempson, whose love affair with the role of Juliet and search for her own Romeo lasted her whole life. Interweaving remembrance, Ms. Kempson’s own words, and passages from Shakespeare, Ms. Redgrave creates a companion piece to her Tony Award-nominated Shakespeare for My Father, which was first seen in early development at Folger Theatre.
Lynn Redgrave was born in London into a family of actors and has enjoyed a four-decade career on stage, screen, and beyond. She is a founding member of The Royal National Theatre and is the author of four plays, Shakespeare for My Father, The Mandrake Root, Nightingale, and Rachel and Juliet. Ms. Redgrave has been nominated for three Tony Awards, two Oscars, two Emmys, and a Grammy. Film highlights include Georgy Girl, Gods and Monsters, Shine, and Kinsey. Her latest film is The Jane Austen Book Club. Other recent credits include the final Merchant/Ivory production, The White Countess, and ABC’s “Desperate Housewives.” She can be heard in the animated film series of Me, Eloise and in the upcoming animated feature, My Dog Tulip. Ms. Redgrave is a prolific “voice on tape” and her latest audio book release is Roald Dahl’s The Witches. She was last seen Off-Broadway in Grace at MCC Theater and will appear as Lady Bracknell in The Importance of Being Earnest at Paper Mill Playhouse in 2009
