Nashville Shakespeare Festival By Kristi Carter Smith, Joel Anderson, 2007
- Nashville Shakespeare Festival
That’s right, Nashville has its own Shakespeare Festival! And when Nashville does Shakespeare, Nashville does Shakespeare RIGHT! The Nashville Shakespeare Festival began in 1988 when a group of local actors performed a free-of-charge rendition of “As You Like It” in Centennial Park. Since then, Shakespeare took a hold in Nashville, with “Shakespeareans” joining the group and bolstering its numbers. Today, Nashville Shakespeare Festivals attract thousands of people every year, with local and traveling artists and actors alike contributing to the event. Anderson Design Group celebrated these fellow artists with a vintage travel poster of Shakespeare, his famous French bulldog, and the Parthenon in the background.
