History, myth and a contemporary wit are frequent bedfellows in Scottish poet Carol Ann Duffy's work. A celebrated and award-winning poet, writer and playwright, Duffy has won the T.S. Eliot Prize and a Lannan Literary Award for Poetry, among others, and was appointed Britain's Poet Laureate in 2009, the first woman to hold the position. Her collections of poetry include The Bees, Rapture and Jubilee Lines. For this appearance, she'll read selections from her own work and from her favorite works by others. Learn More

Definitely one of Shakespeare's weirder plays, but entertaining. First half a tragedy, second a comedy -- it was two plays in one! The actors were really good, especially Naomi Jacobson (Paulina) and Daniel Stewart (Leontes -- who is Patrick Stewart's much-taller but similarly bald son).
We had really good seats near the front with lots of leg room. A little cool, so bring a sweater.

I was very impressed with the production as a whole. There were a few little theatre-geek things that irked me, but the cast was fantastic and my seats were really great. I definitely recommend this show to anyone who loves Shakespeare.
Shakespeare’s Late Romance is filled with the fantasy of a fairy tale. Suspecting his wife Hermione and his friend Polixenes of infidelity, King Leontes is driven to acts of jealous rage. Years later, a miraculous turn of events brings a chance for redemption. What was lost is found and, with it, new wellsprings of happiness.
