There are a lot of ways to commemorate the life of Shakespeare, especially on the 400th anniversary of his death, and American Players Theatre has latched onto the simplest: reading his words. The classical theater company, in preparation for its summer season, will spend 24 hours on its stage, with core company actors, administrators and friends each taking a turn reading from the Bard’s plays. Visitors are free to come and go as they please throughout the day and night.
7 a.m. April 23 to 7 a.m. April 24 at American Players Theatre, Spring Green. Free. americanplayers.org.
