Patrick Willingham, executive director of The Public Theater, discusses an ambitious Shakespeare in the Park season with a new Public Forum speakers series on money and its value in society. A musical production of Love's Labour's Lost continues at the Delacorte through August 18. He also describes the Public's 2013-2014 schedule which includes a collaboration with the Royal Shakespeare Company and a series of benefit concerts by Sting. Willingham talks with Bloomberg's Kathleen Hays and Vonnie Quinn on Bloomberg Radio's "The Hays Advantage."
Shakespeare wrote some three dozen plays, and this season you can see at least 12 of them in New York. Loot turned to James Shapiro, Larry Miller Professor of English at Columbia University, and Leonard Barkan, chairman of Princeton's department of comparative literature, for help with the hard choices.
