Here’s an interesting project up in my neck of the woods (Boston) : a staged reading of Coriolanus by local chief executive officers.
Shakespeare and the law has now evolved into Shakespeare and business. On Thursday, a who’s who of Boston executives will take their positions at the Cutler Majestic for a reading of an edited version of “Coriolanus,” and then they’ll participate in a panel discussion about the leadership and management themes raised by the play. The cast/panelists will include Boston Foundation CEO Paul Grogan, Eastern Bank CEO Richard Holbrook, Boston Globe publisher Chris Mayer, Mass. Convention Center Authority director Jim Rooney, Tufts Health Plan CEO Jim Roosevelt and Bain & Co. senior advisor Phyllis Yale.
The project is co-sponsored by Boston’s own Commonwealth Shakespeare, who will be performing Coriolanus on Boston Common beginning July 25.
