The Fights of Shakespeare:
Michael Hagins is an African-American Playwright, Director, Fight Director, Actor, and Producer. Michael is a Member of Dramatists Guild and an Advanced Actor-Combatant for the Society of American Fight Directors. He and his theatre company C.A.G.E. Theatre Company presents Shakespearean Fight Scenes. These are snippets of traditional sword fighting scenes from various Shakespearean plays denoting when words are no longer enough to settle their issues.
As You WillIf there's one problem with the 884,647 words William Shakespeare wrote it's that they've all been performed already. What about the virtually infinite number of words he hasn't written... yet? The players of As You Will present the works the immortal bard would've written if he hadn't gone and died.
Founded in 2016 by Conor D. Mullen, David Brummer, and George Hider, As You Will has performed unscripted Shakespeare to the delight of audiences across the tri-state area. Taking titular suggestions from their groundlings, the players create an instant Shakespearean classic—complete with historical footnotes—in the bard’s language, meter, and rhyme.
