Pop Upright Shakespeare #3 at Fontanel

Directed by Leah Lowe


Fontanel - Winery Sat, May 25 2:00 PM


Eight directors will stage lively "Upright" readings of the Bard's plays at locations in and around Nashville. The title of the play will be kept secret until the play begins, but each will be a rare opportunity to hear one of Shakespeare's great and lesser-known plays. This month's play is directed by Leah Lowe, Theatre Department Chair & Associate Professor of Directing & Dramaturgy at Vanderbilt University. Dr. Lowe earned her PhD from Florida State University, her MFA in Directing from the University of Minnesota, and her BA from Oberlin College. Since coming to Vanderbilt in 2011, she has directed Carlo Gozzi’s "The Green Bird" and "Dead Man’s Cell Phone" by Sarah Ruhl. Her artistic interests include acting, directing, and devised performance. Her scholarly interests include popular American theatre of the nineteenth century, theories of comedy, and gender performance in theatre and drama. Her work has been published in Theatre Topics, Theatre Journal, and Theatre Symposium.
