Playwright Ken Ludwig — whose credits include “Lend Me a Tenor,” “Crazy for You,” “Moon Over Buffalo” and “Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery” — and McCarter Theater Center artistic director Emily Mann will talk about William Shakespeare online, April 24 at 4:30 p.m. More specifically, the talk will cover the topic of Ludwig’s 2013 book, “How to Teach Your Children Shakespeare.”
There is no charge, but participants are asked to register in advance here. Questions can also be submitted, and for those wishing to support programming like this, donations can be made to the theater or Ludwig’s book can be purchased on this page.
The talk is part of the McCarter@Home program, whose wide range of cultural and educational offerings can be experienced online during the coronavirus crisis. These include “Creative Tuesdays” (educational programs for young students, Tuesdays at 4 p.m.), performances, behind-the-scenes footage and photos from past McCarter theatrical offerings, and more.
Last Friday (April 17), Mann and actress Mary McDonnell — who starred in the theater’s recent production of “Gloria,” a play about journalist and feminist activist Gloria Steinem — took part in an online conversation as part of the @Home series.
