Shakespeare Production at Metro Libraries

“Nothing” can sometimes be a slippery slope to disaster, and especially when “nothing” means gossip and slander, as it does in William Shakespeare’s sparkling comedy, “Much Ado About Nothing.”

The Metropolitan Library System and Reduxion Theatre present four free presentations of the play through April 21 at various MLS locations around Oklahoma County.

“The Playaway is the first self-playing digital audio book,” said MLS Director of Marketing Kim Terry. “We’re excited to add this innovative HD Audio digital format to our existing audiobook collection.”

One-Woman Play About American Poet Emily Dickinson Comes to Metro Libraries

Although she wrote over 1,800 poems, only a dozen of them were published during her lifetime. Poets are not generally known to be roisterers, but Emily Dickinson made introversion and reclusiveness into fine arts.

Actress Ginger Grace brings Dickinson to life in William Luce’s one-woman play, “The Belle of Amherst.” The play will be presented on February 15th and 16th at four Metropolitan Library System sites.
