The Sonnet Slam features readers of all ages performing all 154 of Shakespeare’s sonnets in numerical order.
Producer Melinda Hall created the Sonnet Slam for the people of New York to celebrate Shakespeare, “I wanted to create a unique opportunity for the Sonneteer and Shakespeare to be together on the Bandshell stage, even if it’s only for a minute.”
Past Readers include: Stacy Keach, Dana Ivey, Deputy British Counsul Genereal Nick Astbury and many other notable artists and public figures.
The even is free to the public. Registration to be a Sonneteer opens on April 1st.
