I took my 12 and 14 year old to their first, live Shakespearean play experience. They absolutely loved it. The actors greeted us as we entered the intimate setting. I found the stage to be simple and unintimidating creating an experience that was accessible and comforting for the new Shakespeare theatergoer. The cast was EXCEPTIONAL. Shakespeare tends to be presented in the most austere and rigid way. From the modern costuming, the voice timbre and inflections, and body language, I found it to be relevant and hip. In this production, I heard and discovered new phrases, lines, and moments. I am looking forward to future events. Cheers.
About the Ticket Supplier: The Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre
The Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre was founded as The Red Heel Theatre in 1989, initially focusing on classic works of English theatre. In 1993, Carmen Khan became the Artistic Director of Red Heel and in 1996 focused the company’s efforts on the works of Shakespeare, renaming it The Philadelphia Shakespeare Festival. Since that time, The Festival has produced over 30 plays, reached over 30,000 High School students and nearly 70,000 adult audience members. In 2008/9, we engaged in intensive planning with our board of directors and cultural and community leaders and decided to re-brand and rename the company to better reflect our programming. We now have several programs for adults and students including a lecture series featuring world-renowned Shakespeare Scholars, Shakespeare School Tour which also tours in schools, and a Classical Acting Academy providing early career actors with intense classical training culminating in a free summer Shakespeare play for the public
