Kings, queens, knaves and clowns . . . your favorite Shakespearean

characters come to life!

The Bard and more than 50 of his dramatis personae take a bow in this

remarkable tribute to Shakespeare’s entire canon — 38 plays, including the

obscure "Two Noble Kinsmen." With the Old Globe Theatre as backdrop, James

assembles an eclectic cast of fictional characters and actors in rehearsal

mingling with a few thespians who never tread the boards (but might have

flittered above them). You’ll find Romeo proffering a rose to Juliet, who

rebuffs the salacious overtures of Henry VIII. Viola of Twelfth Night is in the act of binding her breasts to fill the manly role of Cesario, while beside her other Shakespearean heroines don male apparel to play their virile counterparts — all the more interesting when you consider that in Shakespeare’s day men played all the female roles. Caesar is a self-portrait —an opportunity for the artist to make a statement about backstabbing (he doesn’t like it!) and revel in applause (notice Titus Andronicus giving him a warm hand). All humor aside . . . James’ prodigious knowledge of Shakespeare manifests in a work offering multiple layers of meaning and countless discoveries. "All the World’s a Stage" was commissioned by the Utah Shakespearean Festival — winner of the 2000 Tony Award for Outstanding Regional Theatre — in celebration of its 40th anniversary.




James C. Christensen
Inspired by the world’s myths, fables and tales of imagination, James C. Christensen’s work adds up to more than a beautiful - if sometimes “curious” looking work of art. Having taught art professionally for over 20 years, he thought of the world as his classroom. His hope is that through whatever he creates -- be it a porcelain, fine art print or book -- he can convey a message, inspiration or a simple laugh. He believes that teaching people to use their imagination helps us find solutions to sooth the stresses of everyday life-or get a little lift to help us keep going. In short: all things are possible when you share Christensen’s philosophy that “Believing is Seeing.” Christensen was born in 1942 and raised in Culver City, California. He studied painting at Brigham Young University and, for a while, the University of California at Los Angeles before finishing his formal education at BYU. Since then, he has had one-man shows in the West and the Northeast and his work is prized in collections throughout the U.S. and Europe. Christensen has also won all the professional art honors the World Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention can bestow, as well as multiple Chesley Awards from the Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists. Christensen has been designated as a “Utah Art Treasure,” one of Utah’s Top 100 Artists by the Springville Museum of Art and received the Governor’s Award for Art awarded by the Utah Arts Council recognizing the significance of Christensen’s artwork to Utah’s cultural communities. He was inducted into the U.S. Art magazine’s Hall of Fame and is an Honored Alumnus at Brigham Young University for his contributions to fine art and education. James and his wife Carole were co- chairs on the Mormon Arts Foundation. He was a frequent guest lecturer at Brigham Young University, and has also given workshops to large companies and organizations on the subject of creative thinking, including the California Art Educator’s Association, Hallmark and Intermountain Health Care.
