    An Interview with Bill Brown

    To read Shakespeare’s work – let alone to direct and perform it – is no easy feat. Guest Director Bill Brown has made a remarkably successful career out of his love for the Bard. Now, he’s teaching students how to embrace the beauty of Shakespeare’s plays in Loyola’s production of All’s Well that Ends Well. Production dramaturg Lily Cate Gunther-Canada spoke with Bill about his journey as an artist and his aspirations for this spring’s show.
