Shakespeare's revisionist histories opens March 1!

Directed by Erik Wagner     Musical Direction by Kyra Leigh

Starring Brice Baron, Amber Nicole Cartwright, Carlyle DePriest, Rebecca Joy Fletcher, Frank Gasparro, Mariah Ghant, Adrian George Grigoras, Sean Haynes, Theresa Liebhart, Carly McQuay, & Andrew Seller

In an age where political factions create rifts, immigration and human rights are in question, and fake news mixes with the real, what do we have to learn from Shakespeare’s Histories and the political factions of centuries ago? Shakespeare’s Revisionist Histories is a devised new work inspired by these ten plays and hundreds of years of political corruption. Step into a sanctuary space where, for the moment, we are free to sing, play, dance, speak, and read the bard’s rhetoric.
