All The World's A Stage James Christensen

"ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE "
James Christensen
March 2012

950 s/n Giclee Canvas 32 " x 23 " Email-price


Kings, queens, knaves and clowns . . . your favorite Shakespearean 

characters come to life!

The Bard and more than 50 of his dramatis personae take a bow in this 

remarkable tribute to Shakespeare’s entire canon — 38 plays, including the 

obscure "Two Noble Kinsmen." With the Old Globe Theatre as backdrop, James 

assembles an eclectic cast of fictional characters and actors in rehearsal 

mingling with a few thespians who never tread the boards (but might have 

flittered above them). You’ll find Romeo proffering a rose to Juliet, who 

rebuffs the salacious overtures of Henry VIII. Viola of Twelfth Night is in the act of binding her breasts to fill the manly role of Cesario, while beside her other Shakespearean heroines don male apparel to play their virile counterparts — all the more interesting when you consider that in Shakespeare’s day men played all the female roles. Caesar is a self-portrait —an opportunity for the artist to make a statement about backstabbing (he doesn’t like it!) and revel in applause (notice Titus Andronicus giving him a warm hand). All humor aside . . . James’ prodigious knowledge of Shakespeare manifests in a work offering multiple layers of meaning and countless discoveries. "All the World’s a Stage" was commissioned by the Utah Shakespearean Festival — winner of the 2000 Tony Award for Outstanding Regional Theatre — in celebration of its 40th anniversary.
