Carrie Preston

Although I have been doing plays since I was eight-years-old, it was only when I started doing Shakespeare at age 19 at the Georgia Shakespeare Festival that I felt like my career started. I learned from master teachers at the University of Evansville, at Juilliard, at Shakespeare festivals all over the country, eventually landing at Shakespeare in the Park in NYC. That show transferred, so I got to make my Broadway debut doing “The Tempest” with Patrick Stewart. I owe so much to Shakespeare. Nothing is more humbling and more exhilarating than taking ahold of those sacred words and riding them like a wave. If I could only take one book to the island, this one would do just fine.

The origin of the world. The epitome of timelessness and a lesson in human nature. His stories and characters are profoundly revealing; there is endless depth to them. Intended to be read and reread.
