Lewis Center for the Arts’ Program in Theater & Music Theater

Lecturer in Theater Chesney Snow and students in his fall course, “The Oral Interpretation of Toni and William,” present a multimedia oral interpretation of literature installation that examines speech as an aspect of fine art through the exploration of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, as well as the literary canons of iconic American writer Toni Morrison and English playwright and poet William Shakespeare. The installation also includes work by visual artists Brian Gonzalez and AK Lovelace and New York City-area high school students and features live music by AJ Khaw. The work to be presented is inspired by the writings of Fitzgerald, Morrison and Shakespeare’s first folio in the University Library’s Special Collections archive and featured in the Library’s current exhibition, In the Company of Good Books: Shakespeare to Morrison.
