A gnashing storm spills the enemies of the great sorcerer
and rightful duke of Milan, Prospero, upon the shores of his
island realm, setting the stage for revenge. But from there,
Shakespeare’s final, much-loved play defies expectations,
erupting into a timeless, exotic tale of monsters and cavorting
spirits, love and song, merriment and mercy. Directed by
Geoffrey Kent, who created CSF’s 2013 smash-hit, A
Midsummer Night’s Dream, this Tempest will evoke the
early 1800s British maritime era.
Falstaff, one of Shakespeare’s most enduring comic
characters, is at the heart of one of the Bard’s greatest
laugh-out-loud farces. Pursuing the amorous attentions of two
married English ladies, the pompous, rotund knight doesn’t let
their mischievous pranking swerve him from his quest. Sure,
he’s been punk’d, but isn’t it a sign of affection?
This fresh new production will be set in a Catskills resort in the
early 1960s. When Falstaff rolls up with his crew, it’ll be a
hilarious mashup of Dirty Dancing and one of Shakespeare’s
most popular comic plays.
A rising Hollywood star accepts the role of Hamlet at New
York’s Shakespeare in the Park and his agent thinks he’s gone
daft. Why would he trade a fluffy, big-money TV role for
dusty old Shakespeare? Leave it to the ghost of actor John
Barrymore, the quintessential Hamlet of the 20th century, to
hilariously haunt Andy in a play that seeks to answer that
question. Written by New Yorker contributor Paul Rudnick,
who “may be the funniest writer for the stage in the United
States today,” says The New York Times.
Often considered Shakespeare’s most sophisticated history
play, the unquiet reign of Henry IV following the murder of
Richard II introduces the Bard’s greatest comedic character,
Falstaff, the licentious, crafty knight-adviser to Prince Hal. As
the action moves from political sparring between the king
and the rebellious Hotspur to the clash of swords in battle,
the prince begins a journey toward his heroic reign. Our most
traditional production for 2014, with a gorgeously styled
Join us for two very special “original practices” performances
of Henry IV, Part 2. This is Shakespeare as it might have been
done in his time, featuring natural lighting, minimalist costuming,
live music and cue scripts, resulting in a fast-paced, energetic
performance. In the third play of the Henriad, Prince Hal is
now on the road to kingship while his old advisor Falstaff
descends ever deeper into ill health and petty criminality. See
Part 1 in a matinee, break for dinner, then join us for an evening
presentation of Part 2 for an unforgettable theater experience.
