Shakespeare In A Chair is the brainchild of Charlotte, NC resident, husband, father, and entrepreneur Mark S. Williams. He received his Bachelor’s degree from Pace University in Pleasantville, NY, and has been a Sales and Marketing executive in the cable television industry for over fifteen years.
While sitting in a local barbershop in Pineville, NC one day waiting for a haircut, it occurred to Mark that the idle time spent in a barbershop could be used as a learning platform.
In many communities, barbershops and beauty salons are places where open and honest discussions are held daily, covering a wide variety of community and social issues. Barbers and beauticians are viewed as sounding boards, advisors, and motivators for youth, so the barbershop as a learning venue is a natural and comfortable setting.
