Angus Vail - Shakespeare Americana

From Saturday Morning, 11:42 am on 7 October 2017

New Zealand-born Angus Vail has lived in the US for 24 years, during which time he's been the business manager for the rock groups INXS and Kiss, plus Kiwi bands Shihad, Steriogram and 3 Doors Down, and most recently, pop sensation Charlie Puth. During a visit to London in 2012, Vail visited Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and as a result of the experience developed an idea to build Container Globes, or mobile theatres, based on Shakespeare's Globe and built out of shipping containers. The idea has progressed to reality, fundraising has started, and prototypes are being made in Detroit, Michigan, where Vail hopes to play a part in reviving the fortunes of the once-thriving city.
