About the Shows:
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Noah Tuleja
Performs June 26 to 30 and July 3 to 7
King Henry V is all in favor, and to this end he invades France. A good war? A just war? One of Shakespeare’s most beloved history plays offers us a most ambiguous hero, a dubious cause, against-the-odds victories, and one of the most rousing pre-battle speeches ever penned. Join us as we head “Once more unto the breach, dear Friends,” with this streamlined, small cast, ensemble production of King Henry V.
THE *ANNOTATED* TAMING: OR, OUT OF THE SADDLE, INTO THE DIRT
Based on William Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew
Directed by Toby Vera Bercovici
Performs July 17 to 21 and July 24 to 28
Katherina Minola is a fiercely independent young woman held in captivity by her father and then sold into marriage to the highest bidder. Her husband Petruchio recognizes her brilliance, and, in his words, the “two raging fires meet together [and] consume the thing that feeds their fury.” Shakespeare’s passionate love story and searing critique of gender roles is turned here into a fresh and politically relevant rock musical. Adapted by Toby Vera Bercovici with music & lyrics by Old Flame.
