          Using the arts in prison settings for rehabilitation is  a positive and growing phenomenon in our dysfunctional systems. I have posted before about Shakespeare in New York prisons. Today’s post shares the story about a Michigan-based organization, Shakespeare Behind Bars, that also has some interesting links to Kentucky Shakespeare. It grew out of the Kentucky Shakespeare Festival, is now independent, and continues to work in both Kentucky and Michigan. Explore the full website and understand the wonderful work they are doing.

          Shakespeare’s plays are showing up in rehabilitation efforts from prisons, to working with young people with autism, to veterans and active duty military personnel. This project,  Shakespeare With Veterans, is a partnership in Louisville between Kentucky Shakespeare and the local VA center. It is the idea of Fred Johnson, a veteran himself. Thanks to The Huffington Post for this inspiring story.

     Only the New York Time could share a wonderfully humorous and so appropriate an obituary! Enjoy and pass it on.

     The images are from Kentucky Shakespeare and were taken this morning in Stratford, England during the celebrations.

“On this date — April 23, 1616 — the creator of “Hamlet,” “Macbeth” and “Romeo and Juliet” left the beauty of this world. To us, he bequeathed his tragedies and comedies, his sonnets and verse, which would survive 400 years.”
