Shakespeare’s Princess Bride

 
     

Now Playing through September 6:
Pericles

 Before the Brothers Grimm . . . before Hans Christian Anderson, Alice in Wonderland, The Princess Bride, Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Joss Whedon . . . before there were Hobbits, a Spiderman or even Pirates in the Caribbean … there was SHAKESPEARE. 

And let me tell you, the man could tell a story!

 For TWO SHORT weeks at the Shakespeare Tavern Playhouse, we’re playing Pericles: Prince of Tyre. 

This is an encore of last season’s production because- as the Artistic Director of the Shakespeare Tavern- I want everyone to SEE THIS PLAY! 

Pericles: is NOT one of the Towering Masterpieces of Western Literature but it is terrific entertainment! 

The story takes place all over the Ancient Mediterranean: Antioch, Tyre, Mytilene, Pentapolis, Tarsus and covers a span of more than 20 years. There’s an Evil Stepmother, an incestuous Tyrant, Pirates, two resurrections, a brothel, the Goddess Diana, shipwrecks and more laughs than you can shake a spear at (ahem). 

A cast of SIXTEEN actors play SEVENTY roles. There are 93 costume changes and the entire story is woven together by an extraordinary original score by my longtime collaborator and composer, Bo Gaiason (the musician you sometimes see playing guitar in our lobby). 

 If you’re a fan of Great Georgia Storytellers, you’ll recognize the name of Andy Offutt Irwin, who for this production plays the English Poet John Gower (a kind of Elizabethan MC, as it were). 

 At the Shakespeare Tavern, we’ve done ALL of Shakespeare’s plays and we’ve done the famous ones d
ozens of times. Take it from me, this is a rare opportunity to see one of Shakespeare’s most obscure works brought to life in the most delightful way. 

 Just check out the pictures of last year’s production: 

 Last Year, Matt Felten played the Young Pericles (this year’s production features Paul Hester) 

 Nick Faircloth and Mary Ruth Ralston run Myteline’s most successful brothel!

 And Drew Reeves
 plays the Elder Pericles delivering a stunning performance in perhaps Shakespeare’s most memorable reconciliation scene. 

 See this play!

PS And for you Uber GEEKS . . . know that Pericles: Prince of Tyre was actually a collaboration between Shakespeare and a Tavern-keep named George Wilkins (who seems to have done little else of note in his brief theatrical career). 

Clearly, Wilkins is no Shakespeare . . . but he’s pretty good by Elizabethan standards and it’s all kinds of fun trying to spot the real Shakespearean lines in amongst the other stuff (Spoiler alert: Shakespeare pitched the last three innings!). 

 Don’t wait, we have less than 600 tickets remaining.
