We take for granted that, each summer, great actors will appear at the Delacorte theater and enthrall us with their performances under the stars. But as WNYC’s Sara Fishko tells us, it wasn’t always so. In the early days of Joseph Papp’s New York Shakespeare Festival, every day, every play...was a new challenge. Here is an encore presentation of the Fishko Files from 2005 on the occasion of the New York Shakespeare Festival's 50th Anniversary.
News, weather, Radiolab, Brian Lehrer and more.
