Boston Court Extends R II Through 10/27
The Theatre @ Boston Court announces the extension of "R II" text by William Shakespeare, conceived, adapted & directed by Jessica Kubzansky, through October 27, 2013.
About "R II": Stripped to its very essence, Kubzansky's Richard II is theatrical, raw, and performed with only three actors. As Richard says: "thus play I in one person many people-and none contented." Shakespeare's tale still resonates deeply today, posing the ultimate identity crisis. When arrogant King Richard is deposed by Bolingbroke, who has good reason to lead a rebellion and seize the crown, Richard is left bewildered as he struggles to find a new identity, and Bolingbroke is overwhelmed by how hard it is to be king. After all, who are we without our names or titles?
"R II" is presented on the Main Stage at Boston Court Performing Arts Center, 70 N. Mentor Ave, Pasadena, CA. Performances Thursday through Saturday at 8pm and Sunday at 2pm. General admission tickets are $34 with student and senior tickets available at $29. Tickets can be purchased online at bostoncourt.org or by calling (626) 683-6883. Boston Court Performing Arts Center is located one block north of Colorado at the corner of Mentor Ave. and Boston Ct. in Pasadena.
