The Palm Beach Shakespeare Festival will celebrate 32 years of its annual tradition this summer, with a live performance of William Shakespeare's Richard II. Sunday, July 17, 2022, is the last performance of the season in the Jupiter area. Future performances will be held in Royal Palm Beach later this month.
Organizers said if you have only read Shakespeare, you are missing out. “Because it was never written to be read. Shakespeare wrote plays and, of course, the sonnets to be read, but the plays were written in order to be performed," co-producer of the Palm Beach Shakespeare Festival Elizabeth Dashiell said. "The reason why they are still performed around the world to this day is because he wrote about the human experience.
