Romeo and Juliet, a tale of "star-crossed lovers" is one of Shakespeare's most famous works. Shakespeare & Company's Northeast Tour of Romeo and Juliet is a lively, 90-minute production, which emphasizes language, pleasure in playing, and the relationship that exists between the actors and the audience. Our actors create a wonderful rapport with students, and while we make Shakespeare immediate and accessible, we never dumb it down.

Theatre Works
3/14-3/22/2014
Paywright Neil Simon got his first big break in the early '50s as a staff writer on Sid Caesar's fabled television series Your Show of Shows, and this comedy takes a fictionalized look a the backstage chaos that went into producing one of the landmarks of television's golden age. Max Prince is the star of The Max Prince Show, a popular comedy-variety series that is a major hit on the East Coast, but a network executive insists that it's too sophisticated for the Midwest, and urges Prince to dumb down his act. Between the tensions of producing an hour of top-quality comedy each week and being pestered about his ratings, Prince is beginning to unravel. His last line of defense against both the network and the ratings are his writing staff, which spends its days coming up with business for the show while hurling humorous invective at each other and anyone else within earshot.

A middle-aged man, Ian, and young woman, Cate, enter a hotel room. As private and public violations collide, and personal violations open doors to progressively greater violent acts, the world fragments around them. Kane's best-known and most controversial play Blasted was written in 1995 and directly inspired by the war in Yugoslavia, a multicultural jerry-rigged nation that consumed itself in civil-war violence. It was Kane's insight that disclosed that many of the same historical influences which led to this violence were just as present in the streets of our western cities today as they were in the streets of Srebrenica. "Astounding drama...Ms. Kane's chilling contention is that it's not such a stretch for any of us." -The New York Times "A one of a kind theatrical experience." -Theatermania "[Kane's] surreal vision has taken on authentic reality for any nation that happens to be at war." -Variety About The Wilbury Group production Blasted by Sarah Kane Directed by Josh Short Alexander Cook*, Ian Amber Kelly, Cate Jo-an Belanger Peralta, Soldier Fight Direction by Normand Beauregard Projections by Mike Commendatore & Adam O'Brien Lighting Design by Jason Eckenroth Sound Design by Cyrus Leddy Costume Design by Sylvi Re Scenic Design by Monica Shinn Stage Management by Alex Maynard Assistant Director, Kira Hawkridge; Production Manager, Seth Finkle. *Member of Actors' Equity Association, the Union of Professional Actors and Stage Managers in the United States.?

Bolstered by supernatural omens and pushed by his indomitable wife, Macbeth kills the current king and claims the throne. Plagued by paranoia and guilt on their increasingly bloody path to glory, the seemingly untouchable Lord and Lady Macbeth get everything they ever wished for... but nothing they ever expected.
