Such Sweet Thunder on KPLU

Such Sweet Thunder

Seattle Shakespeare Company was part of a sensational concert in February with the Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra Such Sweet Thunder: The Duke Meets the Bard. If you missed the concert or just want to relive the experience, tune in Jim Wilke’s program Jazz Northwest on Sunday, March 9 at 2 PM to KPLU 88.5 FM to hear a broadcast of the first half of the concert. The second half will be broadcast at 2 PM on Sunday, March 16.

Actors George Mount, Darragh Kennan, and Hana Lass (who is appearing in our upcoming production of The Importance of Being Earnest) performed excerpts from Shakespeare’s plays alongside the Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra wonderful rendition of Duke Ellington’s Shakespeare inspired songs. We’re thrilled Jim is able broadcast the entire concert in these two installments.
