Academic Interests: My primary research focuses on the Print and Performance of Early Modern Drama. As a Bibliographer and Text Editor as well as a performer, I am most interested in the ways that Early Modern Drama was received by, and integrated into late 16th and early 17th culture, creating a playing space for this drama that continues to prosper. How did performance and print make it both possible (and problematic) for that drama to be reinterpreted for every succeeding generation of scholars and performers? I am also interested in issues of adaptation and attribution by examining not just the early modern texts, but the stagings, films, photography and art that continue to evolve from them and adapt to new and exciting technologies: some in place, others yet to be developed. I am one of three General Editors of the New Oxford Shakespeare and as I edit, I will continue to explore these texts through the lens of performance. I am passionate about teaching these plays and, perhaps even more, I am passionate about performing them.
