How It’s New York: Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) briefly hosts Simon Callow’s one-man hit show, Being Shakespeare, transferred transatlantic after a long run on London’s West End.
How It’s Irish: Callow attended Queens University Belfast, before dropping out to become an actor. And William Shakespeare, a few years before he died, bought a flat in London–in Ireland Yard! “It’s still there” in the Blackfriars area, the audience learns.
The play runs through April 14 only. Tickets here!
