RSVP on Eventbrite https://www.eventbrite.com/e/appreciating-shakespeare-with-gideon-rappaport-tickets-568686565827

On Tuesday, May 9th, at 6:30 p.m., at the Mission Valley Branch Library, Gideon Rappaport, San Diego’s premier Shakespearean dramaturg, will discuss his book Appreciating Shakespeare, which provides essential tools for understanding and enjoying Shakespeare’s plays and poems. His book also includes short essays on twenty-two plays, pointing readers to the universally meaningful heart of each and to the illuminating themes often hidden or misrepresented in many stage and screen productions and in critical writings.

Gideon has taught Shakespeare, British Literature, and Humanities at Hamilton College, SUNY Cortland, Concordia University, the University of New Hampshire, The Bishop’s School, and La Jolla Country Day School. He has also served as theatrical dramaturge for numerous professional theatres including the Old Globe Theatre, the San Diego Repertory Theatre, the North Coast Repertory Theatre, and the Intrepid Theatre, to name just a few.
