Sonnet #42 for the New York Shakespeare Exchange

I adapted and directed another sonnet for Shakespeare Exchange‘s The Sonnet Project – a great project here in NYC that is aiming to film all of Shakespeare’s sonnets, each performed by a different actor in a carefully chosen New York City location. This time I shot Sonnet 42 about a jilted lover. The location I was assigned provided…

Messiah Come Again

It was first produced in Canada at Victory Christian Center…
