Shakespeare, Under The Sky And Around the Globe | The Daily 360 | The New York Times


So Shakespeare knew better than
anyone that for two hundred years they talked about
hearing plays, you went to listen to a play. And Shakespeare’s words have
endured over the course of time, and he performed,
you know, open air, and that is the tradition to
listen to these plays with the baseline of sound
being these woods or this natural setting. And there is nothing quite like
the end of a play, to have the story be done,
it go to blackout, and the entire thousand seats
look up to the sky, and take a breath.
