I was asked recently for a list of Shakespeare and other early modern plays that I’m planning to see this upcoming season in New York. I decided to do a blog post in case other people would like to see what’s on my radar. I’m sure there are other things that I’m missing, and I welcome suggestions. Stay tuned for blog reviews!
Tamburlaine (by Christopher Marlowe) at Theater for a New Audience, with John Douglas Thompson, one of our best young Shakespearean actors.
I’m going this coming Fri, 12/5.

Run is 12/11-21; I’m going Fri 12/19.

Thanks Steve, really useful. I might be back in New York in late April so may see the last few. Stuart

Let me know if you’ll be in NYC in April, Stuart! If you get in before “Cry, Trojans” closes on the 18th– a production of part of Troilus & Cressida by the Wooster Group — maybe we can see it together?
