Thursday, November 3
What are the Kids calling it these days?
Twitter, facebook, texting, blogging and slang: how do these modern techniques of passing along information facilitate communication, and how do they serve to just confuse older people? Nella Vera (Public Theater Director of Marketing) will moderate a panel featuring Laura Motta and Aileen McKenna (aka Lucky and The Mick, from the popular craptacular blog, a blog about the state of theater in New York), Jane Berentson (author of novel Miss Harper Can Do It, a book about a young teacher’s relationship through sparse e-mails and choppy phone calls, with her boyfriend in the military who has recently been sent overseas) Nick Westrate and Michelle Beck (actors from Love's Labor's Lost). This will be a panel on how young people in the 21st century communicate.

LOVE'S LABOR'S LOST
By WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
Directed by KARIN COONROD

Suffused with fancy and borne aloft on wild flights of poetic wit, LOVE'S LABOR'S LOST is one of the delights of the Shakespeare canon.
The King of Navarre and his best buds swear off romance and withdraw into their studies...until some girls show up. As the young couples stumble their way toward love, the others in their circle -- a pedantic schoolmaster, a Spanish dandy, a streetwise con-man, and a cop with a few screws loose -- work through their own mad dilemmas. In the end, the real world intrudes and brings everyone back to earth, but not even a cold winter blast manages to chill the warmth of this beguiling play.
