    Brush Up Your Shakespeare; Brush Off the Sets

    Ken Jaworowski

    July 15, 2010: WORDS, words, words. Not sets, lights or props. That’s the idea behind the Instant Shakespeare Company, which for the 11th year is performing all of Shakespeare’s plays in bare-bones readings around Manhattan. The traditional framework of a production — extensive staging, long rehearsals — is jettisoned here, leaving only the actors and the script. It’s Shakespeare on a shoestring, created to engage the newcomer and please the purist.
