Free Shakespeare to Feature at The Nuyorican Poets Cafe

Free Shakespeare to Feature at The Nuyorican Poets Cafe

Black Box Performing Arts Center, a professional theater and performing arts school in Northern Jersey, is in the midst of bringing free Shakespeare in the Park to Bergen County for the second season. Unique productions of Romeo & Juliet and Othello have been touring to Teaneck, Englewood, Ridgewood, Tenafly since early July - and now both shows will make special visits to New York City's Nuyorican Poets Cafe in the East Village.

Inside The Nuyorican, these productions will run deeper and darker than their outdoor versions - with evening performances on August 9, 10, and 12. And the best part is that they are FREE (with just a one-drink minimum).

It's punks versus preps in this lesbian reimagining of Romeo & Juliet with non-traditional casting, live guitar underscoring, and wild fights...

Othello explores corporate espionage, broken loyalty, and big business collapsing in on itself as the women do their best to stop the men from turning against each other over "the green-eyed monster"...

Othello will play on Friday August 9 at 7:00PM SHARP and on Saturday August 10 at 9:30PM. Romeo & Juliet will take the stage on Monday August 12 at 7:00PM SHARP. Admission is free (one drink minimum).
