“Tazza” sounds like it could be the name of a character in Two Gentlemen of Verona, so perhaps it’s not odd that the Clark Street location of this shop has become the venue for a weekly reading of Shakespeare. Eagle writer Mary Frost was present for Julius Caesar last week, and found out how this came to be.
Brooklyn Daily Eagle: The event started with just two men and a book. “I know Shakespeare pretty well,” [Perry] Cohen said. “I’m not going to say we went to school together . . . Mark [Golby] wanted to read Shakespeare, so we decided to meet here and read. We were working on Hamlet, and we invited people at other tables to read. We were surprised at the response we got — actually shocked and dismayed. Actually, it was very beautiful. A lot of people were taken by it.”
The group meets on Thursdays at 7:00 p.m. Next week, they’re doing Richard III. So, if you’re ready to give your kingdom for a horse, be there.
