This week on Through the Gates, IU associate professor Murray McGibbon joins host Jim Shanahan to discuss his upcoming "original pronunciation" production of Shakespeare's "King Lear".
McGibbon utilized a grant from IU's New Frontiers in the Arts and Humanities Program to develop the new version of the play. The New Frontiers program encourages scholars to produce innovative works of scholarship and creative activities.
McGibbon took that directive and used it to create a version of the play that utilizes a version of English pronunciation that most closely resembles what Shakespeare's actors would have used in the first run of the production in 1606.
In this interview, Shanahan will ask McGibbon about the development of the play, how original pronunciation works and the challenges for both the actors involved and McGibbon as a director
