Grant Turner, the star of the show, is the artistic director of the Northwest Classical Theatre Company and will present an intimate look at the bard's life from his birth in 1564 to his death in 1616—a pretty cool way to learn from an expert what we all should have learned in eighth grade. The Oregonian gave Turner's show a very favorable review back in September.
