The Professor is in! NYU’s newest Shakespeare professor joins us this week. Maurice andJoe did Romeo and Juliet together back in 2013 where they bonded over margaritas and The Lord of the Rings. This week we talk about making Shakespeare accessible in 2021, how life as an actor isn’t all star studded plays, how Joe literally conned his way into a Shakespeare play on Broadway, and how this “serious” actor found his love of musicals with the help of a little show called Ragtime.
Mr. Jones is an New Jersey native and New York based actor. He is a graduate of Rutgers University where he earned degrees in English and Theatre. He holds an MFA from the National Theatre Conservatory in Denver, CO. He possesses a proud penchant for pocket watches, poetry, plums, percussion, potatoes, Pablo Picasso, Oxford commas, and alliteration.
