Richard III on Wall Street – Act II, Scene 2 in Battery Park

What a compelling place for this scene – this deep and multifaceted meditation on death and passing. We are at one of the 9/11 Memorials here in Battery Park, just south of Wall St. We’re filming all of Richard III at sites in the Wall St area – Financial District more broadly.

This misshapen Globe was taken from the site – very damaged but still standing – and erected here with loving and moving words that you’ll read if you pause the video when the camera goes over them.

At the end of this thought provoking scene is a wonderful view of the Statue of Liberty, a pretty amazing beginning and end to an eerie and foreboding scene.
