Rockford, IL – More than 30 years ago, Rockford native Ted Bacino was noted for quality musical theater productions at Starlight Theatre on the Rock Valley College, Boylan High School and other venues in the area beforwe he moved on to other endeavors. He kept his hand and heart in the theater, however, and now is in the midst of a three-part project based on a centuries old literary mystery. His novel "The Shakespeare Conspiracy" was published last year, and now a stage play and movie are in the works. Bacino's work puts a new twist on the discussion of who actually wrote the works of the Bard of Avon. He spoke with WNIJ's Victor Yehling.
