When Giles Terera (Hamilton and Me: An Actor’s Journal) was auditioning for the role of Aaron Burr in the smash-hit musical Hamilton, a very different ‘Aaron’ was also on the table: that of Aaron the Moor in The Royal Shakespeare Company’s Titus Andronicus. The decision towards Hamilton was made and the rest is history – but throughout his time in the show, Giles’ thoughts kept returning to Shakespeare, and how the Bard and Lin-Manuel Miranda’s rap musical aren’t as different as one might think. In a twist on our long-running annual Shakespeare Lecture, join the Olivier award-winning actor for fascinating insights into the surprising and enlightening parallels he discovered between the two worlds.
