Artful Women presents Susanna Rich
"Shakespeares *itches: The Women Talk Back"

A poetry musical from the points of view of Shakespeares female characters and our contemporary counterparts, including The Dark Lady of the Sonnets teasing Will; Desdemona in a duet with Nicole Brown Simpson; Kate, the shrew, as a contemporary bartender singing a drinking song; Gertrude taunting Ophelia; and Cordelia rapping on the Mountebank William Show.

In turns rollicking and moving, bawdy and philosophical, "Shakespeares *itches" gives voice to often victimized characters, and, through poetry and song, restores their power. The audience(will be invited to participate and sing along!

Written and performed by Emmy-nominated poet and troubadour Susanna Rich.
