About Sam

http://shakespeareindetroit.com

Sam White is an award-winning theatre producer and entrepreneur. Only a few weeks after her hometown filed for bankruptcy in 2013, she pioneered the first-ever Shakespeare company there, called Shakespeare in Detroit, with a groundbreaking performance of Othello. Since then, her work has been featured on the BBC, and several national media outlets. In 2015, she landed the February cover of Southwest Airlines’ inflight magazine, captured by renowned celebrity photographer Cris Crisman.

In 2017, she plans to produce one site-specific performance of Henry V, and a park production of Hamlet. Her vision is to create a world-class Shakespeare company in the city that inspires more inclusion and nontraditional ideas, while respecting The Bard’s classical text.
