Representative, San Francisco Shakespeare Company
Additional Panelists TBA

How have California’s long-established theater companies encountered, engaged and presented LGBT themes in Shakespeare – from cross-dressing to gender confusion to openly gay love – including one company led by an openly gay man who was recently married in a high-level ceremony? Live performances of classic scenes from Shakespeare will be presented.
