touring wing of The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey, Shakespeare
LIVE! has performed for over 300,000 students in New
Jersey, New York and beyond. Since its inception in 1997,
its abridged productions have been hailed as innovative, visually
stunning and accessible to students. Despite the abbreviated
length of each play, LIVE! prides itself on keeping
Shakespeare's language intact. The professionally-acted and
directed productions are dynamic and appealing, exciting and
engaging, witty and imaginative—giving students of all
ages the opportunity to experience Shakespeare's works as
the playwright intended—in performance.
In-depth study guides,
post-performance discussions and interactive workshops complete
the learning experience!
