Mainstage Theater, Theater Arts Center (UCSC)

Written and performed by James DeVita

Directed by John Langs

Freely adapted from the play Acting Shakespeare, originally compiled and written by Ian MacKellen for his 1987 tour of the U.S.

As a young man, James DeVita dreamed of a life on the stage, but how does a 24 year-old fisherman with a thick Long Island accent become a Shakespearean actor? DeVita shares his improbable and inspiring journey from every man to leading man revealing along the way that his biggest hurdle was convincing himself he was smart enough to understand Shakespeare. A touching and truly hilarious evening of theater.
