by BWW News Desk - Mar 5, 2018

Tickets for the current production of The Baron's Men, The Curate Shakespeare As You Like It, are still available for the two final weekends. When Don Nigro, the author, was asked to adapt As You Like It so that it could be performed by seven people, he devised an original work about a ragtag group of players who must present Shakespeare's play in the face of near-impossible challenges. Since its creation, it has become an underground comic classic. This production is Austin's premiere, and it is presented with special arrangement by Samuel French. (more...)

BWW Interview: Kate Clark on THE CURATE SHAKESPEARE AS YOU LIKE ITBWW Interview: Kate Clark on THE CURATE SHAKESPEARE AS YOU LIKE IT
by Frank Benge - Feb 24, 2018

Coming in March, The Baron's Men will be presenting the rarely performed The Curate Shakespeare AS YOU LIKE at the Curtain Theatre. This unique piece of theatre is subtitled 'the record of one company's attempt to perform the play by William Shakespeare.' The piece came about when the playwright, Don Nigro, was asked by a professional theatre company to adapt AS YOU LIKE IT for performance by a company of seven. Mr. Nigro wrote an original play about a motly company of actors, led by a daft curate, who present Shakespeare's AS YOU LIKE IT. The result is a comedy about their attempts to impersonate all of Shakespeare's characters. The play has had numerous productions nationwide and has become a cult theater classic. We recently had an opportunity to sit down with director Kate Clark for a deeper look at bringing this wholly unique piece to Austin audiences. (more...)
