Shakes’ Ladies

April 27, 2010 at 8:18 pm (Uncategorized)

The Many Faces of Willa, it’s a play that I created (not actually sat down and wrote) but created for the purposes of Vinni and Jilly’s back and forth. Their life as students at NYU. It’s a play featuring segments of Shakespearan plays but set in the present and with a modern twist. Something like 10 Things and Leo/Claire’s Romeo & Juliet, but not really. Picture Hamlet’s Ophelia performing in a burlesque show and you’ll get close to what I was thinking of. Jillian’s best friend and sidekick, Vinni lands a part in the Tisch production (as Bianca from The Taming of the Shrew). There’s crossdressing and murder-for-hire. It’s Shakespeare but more.

Jillian, artist that she is, was volunteered by her bestie to work with Set Design and Wardrobe for the costumes, as well as, designing posters to go up around campus.
