Please note, this event has expired.
Nigel Cliff, author of The Shakespeare Riots, discusses the 1849 feud between England’s leading Shakespearean actor and American’s first star of the stage that turned into a full-scale riot in New York. With Bardolatry at its height, the struggle centered on the question of who “owned” Shakespeare.
