William Shakespeare's Birthday April 23

Shakespeare has been an important part of my life since seeing his plays broadcast on TV in 1964, for his 400th birthday. I was 10. I chose Hofstra University as my college because of their Shakespeare festival and have been fortunate to have directed 17 of his plays, some multiple times for a total of 32 productions.all in all his plays have provided me with the foundations of my directing skills and actor training.

Happy 448 Will.
