Photo Flash: First Look At THE WINTER'S TALE At Goodman Theatre
No modern American director is better at making a play's iconic moments pop with fresh irreverence" (Chicago Tribune). Artistic Director Robert Falls reimagines The Winter's Tale-one of William Shakespeare's final and most wildly theatrical works-following his celebrated revivals of Measure for Measure (2013) and King Lear (2006) at Goodman Theatre.
A jealous king accuses his wife of infidelity, setting off a calamitous series of events. But what begins as tragedy evolves, unexpectedly, into a fantastical journey-from wrath to redemption to reconciliation. The 19-member cast includes Will Allan (Clown/Shepherd's Son), Cher Álvarez (Nell) Chloe Baldwin (Perdita), Xavier Bleuel (Florizel), Josh Carpenter (Dion/Shepherd), Christiana Clark (Paulina), Dan Donohue (Leontes), Amanda Drinkall (Emilia/Mopsa), Kate Fry (Hermione), Henry Godinez (Camillo), Charlie Herman (Mamillius), Nathan Hosner (Polixenes), Susaan Jamshidi (Mariana/Dorcas), Philip Earl Johnson (Autolycus), Mark Lancaster (Bear), Gregory Linington (Antigonus), Tim Monsion (Old Shepherd), Christopher Sheard (Archidamus/Shepherd) and Martin Zebari (Cleomenes/Shepherd).
