Shakespeare Sonnet Marathon
Held over Zoom on April 23, the believed date of Shakespeare’s actual birth, the ensemble welcomed guest performances from Academy Award nominee Ralph Fiennes, Grammy nominee Rufus Wainwright, comedian, actress and jazz singer Lea DeLaria, Tony winner Cady Huffman, Tony nominee Daphne Rubin-Vega, Blue Bloods and The Sopranos actor John Ventimiglia, principal dancer with American Ballet Theatre, James Whiteside, and NYC downtown darling Kenyon Phillips.
With over 100 participants to join these guests, each read or sang a sonnet of their choice, the marathon was live streamed on Irondale’s YouTube page.
