Reading Shakespeare Out Loud


E. Noel McCoy

Actor Richard Burton once said that he loved the sound of Shakespeare’s words because they made such a “beautiful noise.” Shakespeare’s plays were written to be performed and watched, not read silently. Come join a former actor in a roundtable reading of Macbeth. Participants will be assigned new roles each week and experience the pleasure of hearing Shakespeare come alive through the spoken word. Absolutely no acting experience is required. Please note that this is not a scholarly discussion, but a chance to read aloud, have fun, and deepen our enjoyment
of Shakespeare’s words. Walk-ins welcome on the first night of class only.
E. Noel McCoy holds a bachelor of arts from Smith College and a master of fine arts and acting certificate from the NYU School of the Arts. She was a member of the acting company at the Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis and appeared in numerous shows in New York City. She is an overseer at the Huntington Theater.
