It will be a 7 ½ hour marathon (456 minutes) taking place while the doors of Irondale, a think tank artist driven theater, remain closed during Covid 19.

Joining Cady Huffman, Daphne Rubin-Vega, John Ventimiglia, Kenyon Phillips and James Whiteside, are Ralph Fiennes, Rufus Wainwright, Lea DeLaria. Guests will read or sing a sonnet, choosing from 154 of Shakespeare’s celebrated 14-line lyric poems written in iambic Pentameter (lines 10 syllables long with accents falling on every second syllable).
