Runs May 25–June19. Opening night May 28, 2016, 8pm
By William Shakespeare
Adapted by Kenneth Lin and Jackson Gay with additional text by Kenneth Lin
Directed by Jackson Gay
Shakespeare’s sharpest comedy about the thin line between love and hate is re-imagined through the eyes of Dogberry and his men, taking Beatrice and Benedick’s highfalutin “will-they-or-won’t-they" affair to a new level of hilarity. Director Jackson Gay, named one of the “power players of Off-Broadway” by the New York Times (along with House of Cards writer Kenneth Lin) adds some surprising new twists to this classic and classist tale.
