by BWW News Desk - Nov 11, 2016

After another amazing season, with amazing work onstage, with amazing audiences, who were in turn….amazed in 2015, What Dreams May Co in partnership with Queens Shakespeare Inc. again turns the microscope onto two of literature's most famous characters, who on the surface appear to be complete opposites. One a certain boy who will never grow up, the other one of Shakespeare's kings who has grown quite old. Yet they both seem to suffer a clear case of "Peter Pan Syndrome"; flying about from place to place, and oblivious to the destruction they leave in their wake. Following up our successful run of The Terrible Tragedy of Peter Pan, What Dreams May Co is pleased to present William Shakespeare's King Lear. (more...)

MAY VIOLETS SPRING Gives Ophelia a Voice at Shetler Studios, Now thru 4/27
by BWW News Desk - Apr 16, 2014

New York City actor and musician James Parenti has nurtured a love of verse all his life, and May Violets Spring is his first outing as an adapter and playwright. In 2011, while preparing to play the title role in Shakespeare's Hamlet, Parenti became frustrated by Ophelia's limited place in the story. Dreaming of a production of Hamlet that gave Ophelia a voice, over the next three years Parenti adapted the material himself. The result is a love letter to classical heroines slighted by the narratives of our past and too often in productions of the present. (more...)
