Photos: First Look at New York Classical Theatre's CYMBELINE

Performances will take place in Central Park and more!

New York Classical Theatre has released production photography for their reimagined production of Shakespeare's romantic adventure Cymbeline, directed by Stephen Burdman. The production is presented free of charge at public parks in Manhattan and Brooklyn through July 10, 2022.

Check out photos below!

"Our Cymbeline is Imogen's story," said Burdman. "We believe her bravery, ingenuity, and integrity make her an inspiring protagonist worth interpreting today. Imogen is the catalyst in the world of the play: she takes agency and-with some disguises and a few swordfights-overturns Cymbeline's royally classist policies."

Performances are Tuesday through Sunday at 7:00 PM:

Central Park (West 103rd Street & Central Park West)
now - June 26, 2022

Carl Schurz Park (East 86th Street & East End Avenue)
June 28 - July 3, 2022

Brooklyn Commons Park at MetroTech (Myrtle Avenue & Bridge Street)
July 5 - 10, 2022

Tickets are free of charge. Reservations are recommended and can be made at nyclassical.org/cymbeline.

The cast features Brandon Burk (Comedy of Errors at Kentucky Shakespeare) as Posthumus/Guiderius, Aziza Gharib (Love's Labour's Lost at the Colorado Shakespeare Festival) as Imogen/Jupiter, Jenny Strassburg (The Mint Theatre's Echoes of the War) as Queen/Belarius, Evan Moore-Coll (NY Classical's King Lear and Macbeth) as Cloten/Cornelius/Soothsayer/British Soldier, Christian Ryan (Macbeth at Orlando Shakespeare) as Iachimo/Aviragus, Nick Salamone (NY Classical's As You Like It and The Seagull) as Cymbeline, and Terrell Wheeler (Fly at Pasadena Playhouse and Florida Studio Theatre) as Pisanio/Caius Lucius.
