The Pawling Shakespeare Club was pleased to welcome Daniel Hasse as its guest speaker on Monday, September 25, at the John Kane House. Mr. Hasse is a writer, director, and teacher specializing in the works of William Shakespeare. He was Assistant Director of the world premiere of the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival’s production of The Book of Will this past summer. He teaches courses on Shakespeare at NYU and has returned for a second year to teach a class on Shakespeare at a charter school in Mount Vernon, NY. Mr. Hasse has many directing and teaching credits to his name including Julius Caesar, Romeo and Juliet, The Winter’s Tale, and Henry VI, Part 3. He has worked on Shakespeare plays in The Square, American Shakespeare Center, and the Actors Studio. His interpretation and insights on Julius Caesar, the Club’s fall selection, were interesting and informative.
