Joining cities around the world, Scranton marked the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death by presenting “Shakespeare Lives! A Festival” on April 23. 

The daylong event included presentations on Shakespeare and gender, Shakespeare’s language and Shakespeare in the 21st century, along with an opening address by noted Shakespearean scholar Cary Mazer, Ph.D., associate professor of English and theater arts at the University of Pennsylvania. The lunch presentation showcased scenes from Hamlet with Michael Bradshaw Flynn ’13, a producing artistic director of the Scranton Shakespeare Festival, presenting “400 and 5: The Scranton Shakespeare Festival.” 

The Education and English and Theatre Departments, as well as the Office of Community and Government Relations and the Lackawanna Arts and Culture Department, presented the festival in collaboration with the Schemel Forum.
