The Oregon Shakespeare Festival had a lot to celebrate on the night of the 2014 Tony Awards. All The Way – which won for best play – was originally produced at the OSF, and made its way to Broadway. With a track record like that, it makes you wonder what OSF can do with interpreters!
OSF’s season runs throughout the Summer and Fall. People travel from all over the world to the OSF, and often want to see at least two different productions while in Portland. The interpreted performances are scheduled so that you can see two different shows in a two-day period. In July, the shows are Into The Woods and The Two Gentlemen of Verona. In October, the interpreted shows are A Wrinkle In Time, Water By The Spoonful, and The Tempest. ASL Coach, Monique Holt, works with top-notch interpreters from across the country to match the excellent production quality at OSF. In this video, Holt gives provides some additional detail about the OSF season, which starts in July and ends in November.
