An Evening with Liev Schreiber
At 8:00 p.m. on Monday, June 14, at the NATIONAL ARTS CLUB in New York, the GUILD hosted a sprightly SPEAKING OF SHAKESPEARE dialogue with Liev Schreiber, a star of stage and screen who won a 2005 Tony Award for his stirring performance in David Mamet's Glengarry Glen Ross and who was nominated for both an Emmy and a Golden Globe for his portrayal of Orson Welles in the HBO movie RKO 281. Mr. Schreiber has worked with such actors as Daniel Craig (in the 2008 film Defiance), Ethan Hawke and Julia Stiles (in Michael Almereyda's Hamlet 2000), Meg Ryan and Hugh Jackman (in 2001's Kate and Leopold), Meryl Streep and Denzel Washington (in a 2004 remake of The Manchurian Candidate), and Sigourney Weaver (in Neil LaBute's play The Mercy Seat). He won a Drama League Award and received nominations for other honors in the 2007 drama Talk Radio, and he and Scarlett Johansson were both Tony nominees for their stirring performances in this year's riveting Broadway revival of Arthur Miller's A View from the Bridge. A talented director as well as a remarkably versatile performer, Mr. Schreiber has thrilled Central Park and Public Theater audiences in a number of Shakespearean roles, among them Hamlet, Henry V, and Macbeth. Among other things, he illustrated Shakespeare's artistry with a brilliant rendering of the "If 'twere done" soliloquy in which an ambitious thane plots his ruler's assassination.
