Stage and Studio
Air date: 
Tue, 07/08/2014 - 11:00am - 11:30am
Short Description: 
The Tempest & Love's Labor's Lost
Dmae Roberts features two backstage interviews at her home studio about two Shakespeare plays about to open in Portland.

First she talks with founding artistic director Michael Mendelson of the Portland Shakespeare Project. They’re producing The Tempest at  Artists Rep's Alder stage. The production stars veteran actress Linda Alper as “Prospera” a magical role usually performed by a male actor. PSP is also presenting a staged reading of The Admirable Crichton by J.M. Barrie (of Peter Pan fame) directed by Jon Kretzu. 

And in the latter part of the show we hear from director Avital Shira about Shakespeare 's Love’s Labor’s Lost  at Post 5 Theatre being performed at the Lacroute courtyard of Milepost 5. 

Dmae talked with them both at her office studio.
