Richard II - 2011 - Off-Broadway

$39-$44

If you tear down a world, what do you build?

If the thing you were born to be is ripped away, what do you become?



Corruption, ambition, and greed stalk the nation—and threaten to destroy its future. In Richard II, Shakespeare chronicles the shattering fall of one king and the meteoric rise of another in a raw and powerful tale of a country—and a soul—in chaos.
