Photos from Shakespeare Performances and Travels


Canadian Landscapes

From the awe-inspiring Atlantic coasts of Newfoundland and Nova Scotia to the Canadian Rocky Mountains.


The home of Stratford Shakespeare Festival, Stratford in the heart of Ontario's Shakespeare scene, as well as a beautiful town in its own right.

United States


The northern-most, western-most, and eastern-most (technically) state, Alaska is home to glaciers, islands, and forests like none other in the nation.


The Illinois Shakespeare Festival of Bloomington, in the heart of Illinois. The festival is a must-see for fans of Shakespeare, held each year at the historic Ewing Manor theater.

Las Vegas

Brilliant neon lights, bizarre architecture, and constant activity adds up to one of the country's most unique cities. It reflects American capitalism at its most brazen.


Photos from beautiful Ashland, Oregon, home of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. This festival attracts thousands of visitors every year to its three main venues.


Utah may well have the most amazing scenery in the continental U.S. The Utah Shakespearean Festival in Cedar City was quite a treat too.


Aside from being one of the author's favorite places to get away, Wisconsin is home to the American Players Theatre, which attracts 100,000 visitors a year.


Continental Europe

The haunting castle of Helsingore is believed to have inspired the story of Hamlet, set in the kingdom of Denmark. Other photos in this collection include sites across the Baltic Sea and the Rhine and Danube Valleys.


The Emerald Isle, and for thousands of years the edge of the known world, Ireland and its people have a special perspective - and some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world.


A center of theatre as well as the capital of the United Kingdom and a center of global commerce, London's foggy streets have inspired writers and poets for nearly 2,000 years.


Few places in the world can match the dramatic scenery of Scotland, with ancient mountains, fathomless lochs, and historic cities.


Shakespeare was born in Stratford-upon-Avon in 1564. The city's history goes far beyond its world-renowned son, however, having been built on a Roman ford and officially recognized as a city over 800 years ago during the reign of Richard the Lionhearted.


The rugged hills, bays, pubs, and people are among this traveler's favorites. Although the smallest of Great  Britain's three constituent countries (four, counting Northern Ireland) is worth repeat visits.
