Love’s Labour’s Lost is directed by Baltimore Shakespeare Factory’s Artistic Director, Tom Delise. Delise promises “crackling dialogue that goes off like firecrackers” and a “plethora of bawdy humor” in this play about four lords who swear off love only to meet their match in four feisty ladies. The language of this fast paced script is the real star, and it is brought to life by Ensemble Members: Jessica Behar, Kerry Brady, Barbara Madison Hauck, Rick Lyon-Vaiden, Jenn Mikulski, Joel Ottenheimer, Chris Ryder, Jim Stimson, Ann Turiano, and Katheryn Zoerb (Company Members) WITH Chris Cotterman, Dominic Gladden and Brian Hanson.

Taming Of The Shrew is directed by Baltimore Shakespeare Factory’s Managing Director, Kelly Dowling. “The unique feature of our production is the use of the Prologue,” says Dowling. “Most people are not even aware it exists, and it puts the events of the play in a completely different light. What if I were to tell you that there is NO real Petruchio and Kate in the world of our play?” The cast will be bringing plenty of male/female conflict, fast paced dialogue, and slapstick humor in this entertaining interpretation. Ensemble Members include: Jessica Behar, Rick Lyon-Vaiden, Frank Mancino, Joel Ottenheimer, Chris Ryder, and Ann Turiano (Company Members) WITH Diane Appel, Lisa Bryan, Daniel Douek, Hannah Fogler, Alanna Mensing and Claudio Silva
