Elm Shakespeare‘s Jeremy Funke recalls many words we now use commonly that Shakespeare invented. Pretty surprising.

And if you want to experience Shakespeare’s work firsthand, come to The Bard At The Bar: 

Elm Shakespeare will host an open-participation reading of Much Ado About Nothing at Trinity Bar in New Haven April 12, 2015 2-6PM.

In “circle-style” readings, parts are assigned by the seating order at the table and held for only one scene at a time. Elm actor and Resident Teaching Artist, Jeremy Funke, will read Benedick, and Associate Artistic Director, Raphael Massie, Leonato, but all other parts are up for grabs around the table, including Beatrice, Hero, Claudia, Don Pedro, Don John, Ursula, Dogberry, and the rest of the cast of characters.

Copies of the text will be available to share, but all guests are
welcome to bring their favorite collected works, dog eared
paperbacks, or tablet apps.

Participation in the reading is strongly encouraged, but by no means
required, for those who prefer to watch and listen – though this is
less of a performance than a casual engagement with and shared
appreciation for the timeless work of William Shakespeare.

Jeremy Funke will moderate discussion between acts (or after
particular scenes) to make the work accessible for all. Guests can
takes breaks from the action to partake of Trinity Bar and
Restaurant’s excellent food and drinks menu.
