SHADOWLANDS:
a festival of beautiful short theatrical events celebrating Poetry and Magic.

 

Broomstick, by John Biguenet, a solo show about a sly witch who may have eaten small children. John is a genius, and created this 90-minute tour de force in iambic pentameter! Delicious!

 

Macbeth3 (M3) a gender-bent three-actor adaptation of the Scottish play. I will play Himself. Nick Salamone will play the Lady, and I am co-directing with my longtime brilliant collaborator, Natsuko Ohama.

 

The Alchemy of Gender is my autobiographical solo show, which I’ve toured to fabulous reviews from L.A. to London and through twenty other cities. In it I play Hamlet, Richard III, Shylock, and other great male characters. Directed by Eleanor Holdridge.

 

And I’m launching TranShakespeare NYC, an intensive Acting and Directing workshop and performance initiative.

Shakespeare and the Alchemy of Gender 

See photos!

is beyond and about gender - an actor's journey written and performed by Lisa Wolpe, acclaimed Shakespearean Drag King. It's pages are torn from the libraries of the great Elizabethan Renaissance Mystery Schools. This is the story of a masterful performer peeking through the veil, a cosmic cartographer celebrating Shakespeare's most powerful work. Wolpe reveals the physical and spiritual secrets of cross-gender performance, and offers a rare insight into the making of the Great Bard's magic. A one-woman show, written, directed, and performed by Lisa Wolpe.
