The Sonnet Project
July 31, 2015
If you are interested in Shakespeare, or sonnets, or New York City, The Sonnet Project has it all. The idea, originally slated for completion on Shakespeare’s 450th birthday (April 23rd 2014), is “to film all of Shakespeare’s sonnets, each performed by a different actor in a carefully chosen New York City location.”
When that deadline turned out to be unmanageable, the New York Shakespeare Exchange forged ahead anyway. Today there is a Sonnet Project website (with daily sonnet postings), Facebook page, Twitter feed and a Sonnet Project app. The films are posted on the website and on YouTube.
If you’re interested in recitation, this is a great place to hear Shakespeare.
