Silent Shakespeare

World expert on Shakespeare and silent films, Director of the Humanities Research Centre at the University of York Judith Buchanan comes to Chicago to host an evening at the Music Box Theatre, transporting audiences back one hundred years when Shakespeare’s beloved works first found themselves translated into the new medium of moving pictures. Chicago actors and a live accompanist will join Buchanan onstage for a presentation featuring rare clips from silent films and lively commentary.
