Shakespeare & Company, in its 33rd year, and located a block from Hampton Terrace, has announced its 2011 Schedule, and tickets ARE ON SALE.
They have three premieres on the boards this summer with Red Hot Patriot: The Kick-Ass Wit of Molly Ivins, The Hollow Crown, and Everyman/EveryActor, along with two of Shakespeare’s best loved tales, As You Like It and The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. Due to popular demand, they’re bringing back the side-splittingly funny The Hound of the Baskervilles and Tina Packer’s expanded, five-part version of her spectacular Women of Will masterpiece titled Women of Will, The Complete Journey: Parts I-V.
In the Elayne P. Bernstein Theatre, they’re presenting one of our finest casts in The Memory of Water, a beautiful story that’s both funny and profound. They’re also hosting the New England premiere of Red Hot Patriot: The Kick-Ass Wit of Molly Ivins by Margaret and Allison Engel. Tina Packer tackles one of America’s most outrageous political voices in this hilarious one-woman show. And, of course, the EBT season wouldn’t be complete without our highly successful Lunch Box Shakespeare featuring their very talented Performance Intern Company in The Two Gentlemen of Verona.
Founders’ Theatre is set to bustle with sword fights, soaring poetry, and complex characters that have stood the test of time. With Daniela Varon at the helm of Romeo and Juliet, this production will set the standard for many years to come. Taking place in Paris after The Great War, my As You Like It brings music, dance, and song to this delightful comedy of true romance—a perfect complement to any summer’s day or eve.
Our outdoor Rose Footprint Theatre includes the hysterical The Venetian Twins (a brilliant example of commedia dell’arte by Goldoni), the world-premiere of Everyman/EveryActor, and a cornucopia of lectures, tours, FREE theatre, cabarets, and special events for you and your family to enjoy.
