We are already well into the series of performances of Shakespeare’s early masterpiece, Richard II. The only one of his plays to have been written entirely in verse, it has long been treasured for the poetic beauty of its sad tale of a failed monarch. As rich as this stream in the play is, Shakespeare never neglected the toughness of the genre of history plays he helped to create.

Under the direction of the brilliant Melania Levitsky and produced by Walking the Dog Theater, these outstanding actors will play out Richard’s lamentable decline and demise in Harlemville, New York. I’ve heard great things about this show, and I’m convinced it’s not to be missed. Dates and booking information below, or click here.

I’m going Wednesday the 25th. Please join me there!
