SATURDAY, APRIL 23–THURSDAY, APRIL 28

SHAKESPEARE MARATHON: 38 PLAYS IN 5 DAYS

When Burning Coal Theatre Company artistic director Jerome Davis learned that a copy of the First Folio, published in 1623, was coming to the N.C. Museum of History (on view May 7–30) to commemorate the four-hundredth anniversary of Shakespeare's death, his surprising response was, "Let's read it—the whole thing." He's enlisted forty troupes from across the state for a nonstop staged reading of Shakespeare's entire oeuvre at the museum, starting at noon on Saturday and continuing through Thursday morning. The building will be open all hours, but if you'd rather catch Sunday's wee-hours reading of Titus Andronicus in your pajamas, the shows will also be live-streamed at www.ncmuseumofhistory.org. —Byron Woods
