First Folio! Colloquia: Lezlie Cross
Capturing Shakespearean Performance in Print: The Edwin Booth Prompt Books
Lezlie Cross, assistant professor of Theatre at UNLV
This lecture stems from Dr. Lezlie Cross's in-progress book project which details the publication, sales, and use of Edwin Booth's acting editions of Shakespeare. Booth was the most popular and influential actor in nineteenth-century America and this study of his acting editions provides a rare glimpse into the history of the American theatre and print industry.
The event is hosted in conjunction with First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare.
This event is free and open to the public.
To attend, please RSVP.
