The Sonnet Man “compares thee to a summer’s day”

Devon Glover, aka The Sonnet Man, combines Shakespeare’s sonnets and Hip-Hop to appeal to audiences of all ages.

He is currently running a Kickstarter campaign (and is very close to success) with the goal of raising funds to create a curriculum guide, as well as create additional sonnets and videos for students and fans of Shakespeare. If you’d like to contribute, click here for the actual Kickstarter page.

Devon will be in Los Angeles this fall working with Salty Shakespeare on their production of Richard III directed by Nancy Linehan Charles.

The Sonnet Man has appeared on The Today Show, Schools and Universities throughout the NYC area, and an annual performance in Negril, Jamaica, featured in the Soul Rebellion concert for the NEET program.
