2008 - Shouts & Whispers




“ The time has come,” the walrus said, “to talk of many things:
Of shoes—and ships—and sealing wax—
Of cabbages—and kings—”

We talk of all those things this season and much more. Never before has The Shakespeare Theatre engaged in such an ambitious and breathtaking lineup of classic “hits.” From the highest-quality froth to the deepest chambers of the human heart, we bring you parables and tales that will delight, entertain, and provoke reflections about yourself and all those who inhabit the life that swirls around you. The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey is a rare place. Tell the world!
