BREAKING THE SHAKESPEARE CODE Returns To New York This May
After sold-out runs in Chicago and the New York International Fringe Festival, Hey Jonte! Productions is pleased to announce the return of BREAKING THE SHAKESPEARE CODE by John Minigan (Massachusetts Cultural Council Artist Fellow), directed by Stephen Brotebeck (Broadway's Peter and the Starcatcher and Ghost, The Musical). Breaking the Shakespeare Code will play a two-week limited engagement at The Black Box at 440 Studios (440 Lafayette St, New York, NY 10003). Performances begin Thu, May 23rd and continue through Sun, June 2nd, 2019. Opening night is Fri, May 24th at 8:00pm.
Eighteen-year-old Anna approaches Curt, a callous young acting instructor at the women's college she attends, to ask him to coach her for an upcoming audition. Though initially dismissive, he agrees to work with her only when she survives his challenges to her work on Julius Caesar's Portia. Their lives converge personally and professionally over the next sixteen years as they try to find the right moment and opportunity to finally reveal their true feelings for one another.
The production stars Miranda Jonte* as Anna and Tim Weinert as Curt.
The production stage manager is Kyrie McCormick.
