About Living with Shakespeare

By Jeremy Smith and Steven Gallagher Directed by Steven Gallagher
Music Direction by Tom Lillington Stage Management by Sandi Becker
Performed by Jeremy Smith with musical accompaniment by Tom Lillington 

“Shakespeare has taken over my life. He’s the Oscar to my Felix, the Ernie to my Bert, the R2 to my 3P0. He’s my constant and not always welcome companion.”- Jeremy, Living With Shakespeare 

In Living With Shakespeare, Driftwood Artistic Director Jeremy Smith reckons with his life-long relationship to the Bard of Avon. Weaving scenes, passages, and music from Shakespeare’s greatest plays with personal stories from Jeremy’s lifelong relationship to the Bard, Living With Shakespeare is an exploration of our continuing fascination with the world’s most recognizable playwright.
