Tennessee Shakespeare builds on its Southern Exposure Series, and expands its opportunities for fans of world literature with a pair of literary Salons.
Here are the details:
"Of Ireland Born" features legendary Irish star of stage and screen Bosco Hogan reading from Yeats, Synge, O’Connor, and more on June 10 at Memphis’ Authentic Irish Pub The Brass Door downtown. Mr. Hogan is the star of such recent series and films as "The Tudors," "The Borgias," and "In the Name of the Father." The evening also features the live, traditional Irish music of Robert Johnson and John Albertson.
Mark Twain at Twilight on July 22 features Memphis Grizzlies television play-by-play announcer and ardent Twain fan Pete Pranica in a delightfully witty evening of American humor. Hosted by Milton T. Schaeffer in and around his luxurious Germantown residence recently featured in Memphis Magazine, the evening is also enlivened by live ragtime music.
