On Tuesday, April 20 at noon, 16 actors will appear at the Library of Congress Whittall Pavilion to deliver more world-famous iambic pentameter than you can shake a spear at.
Its the annual Shakespeares Birthday reading, a chapter in the Poetry at Noon series presented by the Librarys Poetry and Literature Center. (Its Shakespeares 446th.)
The actors, from the Shakespeare Theater Companys Academy for Classical Acting at The George Washington University, will not only deliver the words but will act them out for the audience wordplay may be joined by swordplay.
Poetry at Noon is free and open to the public. The Whittall Pavilion is on the ground floor (for all you groundlings) of the Librarys Thomas Jefferson Building, 10 First St., S.E., Washington, D.C.
