Stanford Live’s 2023–24 Season Highlights with Acting Director Deborah Cullinan

Stanford Live’s 2023–24 season spotlights work by artists engaged in conversations around reflection and reinvention. At the core of this season are stories we know well – FrankensteinMoby DickRomeo and Juliet, and The Jungle Book. In each case, artists have reinvented these tales in ways that may challenge your memories of them. What if Romeo and Juliet survived the poison and now found themselves facing a midlife crisis? How would the tales of The Jungle Book be retold against the backdrop of a climate crisis? What happened in the life of Mary Shelley that led her to create the world’s most famous monster?
