LAMDA

I recently fell in love with Shakespeare.

I know…I know, I’m a little late to the game.

I had loved reading it in school, and had seen a few great productions growing up, but it wasn’t until this past year that I started to get the itch to DO some Shakespeare.

So, this summer, I spent a month at LAMDA, or The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, if you’re feeling fancy.

London was wonderful, and aside from seeing as many shows as possible, my favorite part was listening to my classmates.  It was a very international program, and in my class alone there were students from Iceland, France, Austria, England, Wales, Australia, the US, and Argentina.

Shakespeare is incredible enough already, adding all these different accents to it makes it sound like a symphony.

There’s a speech from Romeo and Juliet that I will now forever hear in a French accent.  And I love it.

P.S. If you’re interested in studying Shakespeare…or acting in general, in LA…look no further than John Walcutt.

He’s phenomenal.
