Shakespeare Meets Jefferson in U.Va. Students’ Upcoming ‘BARD Fest’

BARD Fest

“If you tickle us, do we not laugh?,” William Shakespeare wrote in “The Merchant of Venice.”

Laughter and merriment is sure to be a part of the festivities this spring when University of Virginia students and professors of Shakespeare celebrate the playwright’s 450th birthday during “BARD Fest,” a four-day festival organized by students in the Department of Drama. (A publicity poster identifies “BARD” as an acronym for “Bastardized and Adapted Renaissance Drama.”)
