Photo Flash: New Shots from Commedia Beauregard's BARD FICTION
Following their hit holiday show A Klingon Christmas Carol, Commedia Beauregard is pleased to present the return of its wildly popular dark comedy BARD FICTION, a Shakespearean retelling of Quentin Tarantino's cult film classic Pulp Fiction, written by Ben Tallen, Aaron Greer, Brian Watson-Jones and the collaborative efforts of the Pulp Bard Wiki and directed and choreographed by Artistic Director Christopher Kidder-Mostrom. BARD FICTION plays now through August 2, 2015 at City Lit Theater, 1020 W. Bryn Mawr Ave. in Chicago. Scroll down for new photos of the cast onstage!
BARD FICTION features Josh Zagoren and Steven Royce in the roles created by John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson - though, this time, in Shakespearean verse. Other returning cast members include Clark Bender, Jackie Davies, Zach Livingston and Reggie Vaughn with newcomers Greg Callozzo, Alex Glossman, Nicole Jordan, Brenda E. Kelly, Ali Kidder-Mostrom, Vivian Knouse, Kristin Larsen, Chris Lysy, Joshua Simpson, Abby Stark and Max Tomaszewski.
BARD FICTION takes the characters and story from Tarantino's classic film and makes them a part of the London underworld in Elizabethan England. It's pop-culture meets high-culture and the result is exciting for fans of Shakespeare and Pulp Fiction alike. Commedia Beauregard regularly performs plays translated from one language to another (A Klingon Christmas Carol, Machiavelli's The Mandrake), however this time they will be bring to the stage a play translating between art forms and eras.
The production team for BARD FICTION includes: Devon Mackay (scenic design), kClare Kemock and Jackie Daniels (costume design), Liz Cooper (lighting design), Joe Griffin (sound design and score) Vivian Knouse (props), Marc Malnekoff and Brenda E. Kelly (weapons), Zach Livingston (fight choreography) and Hazel Flowers-McCabe (stage manager).
