London Buzz: Shakespearean Characters to Perform Throughout City

Heads up, London-bound travelers—especially theater fans! We hear through city website Londonist that Shakespearean characters will be popping up around the city to interact with the public.

‘Surprises: What You Will: Pop-Up Shakespeare’ was created by Tony- and Olivier-winning actor Mark Rylance (former artistic director of the Globe Theatre), who describes it as "a random act of senseless beauty and an artistic ambush." Puck, Hamlet, Cleopatra, Juliet and other characters will be played by 50 actors aged 17 to 70, including deaf and disabled artists. They will perform brief interactions with the public before disappearing back into the crowd.

What You Will: Pop-Up Shakespeare What You Will: Pop-up Shakespeare will take place during the first week of the London 2012 Paralympic Games from Tuesday, August 28 to Sunday, September 2. The exact times and locations will remain a surprise until the day of the performances, but people can register for updates at and follow @molpresents and @London2012Fest on Twitter.
