Directed by John Langs
Running time: 90 minutes (includes one 15-minute intermission)

James DeVita pulls back the curtain on his journey from fishing boats to the stage, and overcoming his biggest hurdle: convincing himself that he was smart enough to understand Shakespeare.

Now, with more than 125 roles to his credit, DeVita is one of the most sought after actors on America's major stages. Whether you've seen the entire Shakespeare canon, or you simply love hearing stories about everyday people following their dreams, you'll be delighted by this acclaimed performance.
