Winter, Based on The Winter's Tale, Runs Feb. 4-26

2B and Wrash Theatre Company will present Winter, a play by A.J. Raath based on Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale. The show will run at The Looking Glass Theatre (located at 422 West 57th Street between 9th and 10th Avenue) from February 4th through February 26th.
 
"Winter mixes key scenes from Shakespeare's late romance The Winter's Tale with a contemporary love story. In Shakespeare's play King Leontes accuses Queen Hermione of adultery and despite no evidence to support this, he sends his family, his kingdom and himself into a downward spiral into tragedy. In the modern story, Leonard and Helen fall in love despite his unstable behavior. Panicked after Helen becomes pregnant, Leonard jilts her, ends their relationship and goes on a drinking binge. He visits an old friend to inquire about his baby to find that the baby is a mystery – did the baby even really exist? Where redemption in Shakespeare's romance is a reality, in its contemporary counterpart, redemption may be just a fantasy," state press notes.
 
W. Allen Wrede will direct a cast that includes Michael Beaman, Sarah Brynne, Andrew Carter, Anthony Ciccotelli, R.J. Foster, Felicia Graybeal, Topping Haggerty, Suzanne Hall, Jeffrey Kitrosser, Stephanie Roman and Daniela Tedesco.

Performances are on Sat. Feb. 4th at 2pm, Mon. Feb. 6th at 8pm, Fri. Feb. 10th at 8pm, Sat. Feb. 11 at 2pm & 8pm, Wed. Feb. 15th at 8pm, Thurs. Feb. 16th at 8pm, Sun. Feb.19th at 3pm and 7pm, Tue.
