What might the early modern actors’ part look like for William Shakespeare’sMuch Ado About Nothing? What might cutting together these scripts, sometimes referred to as “role” or “cue,” illuminate about characters, plot, and the text as a whole? As dramaturgs, what should be considered when cutting for live performance? All of these questions have been considered by our team at Alabama Shakespeare Project (ASP), as we prepare for our upcoming production of MAAN.
