With the release of Anonymous, a big-budget Shakespearean whodunit, public scrutiny has reached a boiling point over the Bard of Avon’s true identity. But Callow -- one of England’s finest thespians and one of the first notable actors to officially come out (in 1984, no less) -- is here to set the record straight. Starring in the one-man show Being Shakespeare, he leads the audience through colorful tales of Elizabethan times that reinforce the veracity of the legendary author’s name. After a successful run on London’s West End, the play traveled to the Brooklyn Academy of Music and then to the Chicago Shakespeare Theater.
