Nelson’s previous Shakespearean productions have included Measure for Measure, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and The Taming of the Shrew.

He also spent four seasons as an actor with Shakespearean companies in Maine (The Theatre at Monmouth) and Montana (Shakespeare-in-the-Parks). Among his Shakespearean roles are Cassius in Julius Caesar, Bottom in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Justice Shallow in The Merry Wives of Windsor and Don Pedro in Much Ado About Nothing.

He has also played Polonius in a modern-dress film adaptation of Hamlet (see earlier post here).
