Students Perform Shakespeare on the ‘Very’ Small Stage


parkingspaceFor the second straight year, Fordham theatre students brought Shakespeare from the stage to the street and, in so doing, made a statement about America’s public parks.

The event, in which the students performed The Taming of the Shrew on Sept. 18 in a parking space across the street from Fordham’s Lincoln Center campus, was part of National Park(ing) Day 2009.

Each year, students, artists and environmentalists take over parking spaces across the country and temporarily convert them into miniature parks. The day is designed to protest the automobile’s monopolization of urban street-space and to draw attention to the need for public parks.

Below, Fordham College at Lincoln Center freshmen Emily Stout and Chris Stahl perform a scene written by the Bard of Avon.
