OAKLAND (KDKA) — William Shakespeare’s birthday was celebrated Sunday in Oakland.
Historians believe he was born 454 years ago on the same date that he died years later — April 23.
During this year’s “Week of Will,” they laid flowers at the Shakespeare statue in Oakland, sang songs, read sonnets and performed favorite scenes from the Bard’s plays.
Shakespeare-related events continue all week throughout the city.
