CultureWest.Org is endeavoring to make short films out of all 154 of Shakespeare’s sonnets, each featuring actors with Colorado connections. The artistic intent is primarily to further CultureWest’s mission to spotlight the local theatre community and their current or upcoming productions. It’s also an attempt to promote Shakespeare education in a fun way. This is an entirely volunteer project with a proud budget of … zero dollars.
We are rolling out new Sonnet videos … well, as soon as they are completed. Here’s a link to the YouTube playlist that hosts the entire series.
For Sonnet 55, multiple award-winning actor Cajardo Rameer Lindsey bleeds into the camera, proclaiming that, through his words, his beloved will outlive buildings, war, fire and to the end of time, living on in the eyes of all lovers who read them. Video production by Ulysses Porter Brown. Lindsey will next star in Curious Theatre’s “In the Red and Brown Water,” running March 7-April 18. Followed by a reprise of “The Brothers Size.” Both are part of a trilogy by Tarell Alvin McCraney. Call 303-623-0524 or click here.
