Liev Schreiber Gives a Masterful Class in Acting Shakespeare

Liev as Hamlet

Liev Schreiber gave a terrific talk to a large crowd at Yale’s University Theatre in New Haven Monday night.

The Tony Award-winning actor and Yale School of Drama alum (’92) showed his serious (and wry) side as he talked about his process of acting in Shakespearean plays.

James Bundy, School of Drama dean and artistic director of the Yale Repertory Theatre, led the conversation on stage with Schreiber, who was obviously nursing a cold. But sniffles and coughs didn’t distract from the excellent explanation at the free event (which was open to the public) on how he approached the Bard’s texts. (Among his leading roles have been in “Henry V,” “Othello,” “Macbeth” and “Hamlet.”)

This was meaty stuff, not the fan fluff that James Lipton pursues in his laughably titled Actor’s Studio interviews
