SHAKESPEARE PLAY IN ORIGINAL PRONUNCIATION TO OPEN THIS FRIDAY

Shakespeare's own "fairy tale" has it all: kings and thieves... love and jealousy... comedy and tragedy... loss and redemption... angry gods and an even angrier bear!
But our production of The Winter's Tale has something extra...

  • First, it's an historic production. We're performing this magical play in Original Pronunciation (OP) - as Shakespeare himself heard it - for the FIRST time in modern history. (The Baltimore Sun said of our last OP production, it's "surprising how quickly the ear can adjust to English as spoken 400 years ago... Pretty cool sound, too.")
  • Second, the show is directed by ASC's own James Keegan, one of the finest Shakespeare actors working today.
  • Third, the "exit pursued by a bear" is like nothing you've ever seen.
