BWW TV: Highlights from TROILUS & CRESSIDA at Shakespeare in the Park!

Directed by Daniel Sullivan, Troilus and Cressida began performances on Tuesday, July 19 and will run through Sunday, August 14, with an official press opening on Tuesday, August 9.

Tony-winning director Daniel Sullivan (Proof, Cymbeline) returns to Shakespeare in the Park with one of the Bard's most rarely produced plays, Troilus and Cressida. Both warriors and lovers play hard to get in this surprisingly modern epic about the hot blood, hot thoughts and hot deeds of the ancient Greeks. In the 7th year of the Trojan War, Troilus, a young prince, pines for the affections of Cressida, a bright young woman who knows how to play it cool. Meanwhile, the heroes of the Iliad - Hector, Paris and the kings they serve - debate whether to return the dangerously beautiful captive Helen or continue to fight without end. Nations and lovers alike do battle in this funny, piercing drama about romance and revenge in a world at war.
