"The 14 year-old playing Sir Toby Belch had a large false military moustache and was constantly quaffing ale (actually Pepsi Cola).
He drank so much from his large mug that huge drops were dripping off the end of his moustache. When he turned to me rather quickly,
he slung a bead of Pepsi into my eye. And I burst out laughing and broke the scene. I disgraced myself in the eyes of my Cape Town
High School English teacher...and William Shakespeare himself.
In Shakespeare and Me, Denver actor Joey Wishnia takes to the stage to share his personal, dramatic and often hilarious experiences with
all things Shakespeare. Throughout his long career, Joey has appeared in nineteen of Shakespeare's plays and directed five of them on three
different continents. From his first school play through his most recent readings, he recounts the trials and tribulations of an actor
working with the Bard, including his encounter with the greatest Shakespearean actor of the last century - Sir Laurence Olivier.
Joey is a master storyteller weaving Shakespeare's words effortlessly into, and through, his own experiences.
