The Great Atlantic & Pacific Shakespeare Company is an uproarious romp through the travails of a down-and-out company of Shakespeareans. When financial malfeasance brings The Great A&P to the brink, the company's stars, ex-lovers Biron and Rose, can't seem to get their act together to save it-to the endless consternation of everyone. At the end of their affair, Biron takes refuge in the weird teachings of Sister Rene, while Rose trundles off the Caribbean with Christopher Sylman, a smarmy lawyer she picked up at Shelley's Bar. Can the players convince Biron he didn't kill his wife with his infidelity? Can they convince Rose to focus on the A&P's teetering prospects? Will Rose and Biron resolve their personal problems-or will their bickering mean the end of The Great A&P once and for all? And what good is Shakespeare? To be, or not to be. That is the question. (No profound knowledge of Shakespeare is expected or required.) Come join us for a laugh out loud, fun filled evening of madcap entertainment. Parental discretion advised-- adult themes and strong language may not be suitable for children.
