"Was Hamlet crazy when he killed Polonius?"
“Shakespeare steals stories from everybody, but what he does with those stories is clearly an act of his imagination and his will,” says Kahn.
Michael Kahn directed two very different stage versions of Shakespeare’s Henry V, which helped him realize the full complexity of leadership.
