Shakespeare and Me
In this original play, Joey Wishnia shares his personal, dramatic, and often hilarious, experiences with Shakespeare. Throughout his long career, Joey has appeared in 19 of Shakespeare's plays and directed five of them on three different continents. From his first school play through his most recent readings, he shares the trials and tribulations of an actor working with the Bard, including his encounter with the greatest Shakespearean actor of the last century - Sir Laurence Olivier. Joey is a master storyteller weaving Shakespeare's words into, and through, his own stage experiences.
