Dear theatre friend,
Greetings on the Ides of March! How about watching “Julius Caesar,” with Marlon Brando, to honor the day?
Another, to keep that Roman spirit alive, is “Coriolanus,” on The National Theatre at Home site.
While there, please take a look at Nina Raine’s “Consent”– with Ben Chaplin, among a terrific cast. Here’s the Guardian’s four star review.
Also recently added, the iconic “Cat On a Hot Tin Roof,” starring Sienna Miller, in the Young Vic production.
Continue to celebrate Tennessee Williams– for his 110th birthday, “The Night of the Iguana” will be reprised by La Femme Theatre in a benefit performance for The Actors Fund.
Beginning tomorrow, a promising offer from Jermyn Street Theatre— “Adventurous,” a debut play from Ian Hallard. He stars along with Olivier Award-winning actor, Sara Crowe.
From March 18th, you might like to hear a new audio play from The Public Theatre, “Romeo and Julieta.” This bilingual adaptation is directed by Saheem Ali, stars Lupita Nyong’o, and is co produced with WNYC.
For considerably lighter fare, don’t miss the free video of “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike” from the Lincoln Center archive. This Tony Award-winning Best Play of 2013 is a showcase for the formidable comic talents of Sigourney Weaver, Kristine Nielsen and David Hyde Pierce. I can still remember laughing until weak– try it, beginning Thursday, the 18th.
That’s it for now–
