Conceived by Michael Bigelow Dixon. Written by Janet Allard, Niko Tsakalakos, Constance Congdon, Richard Dresser, Ginna Hoben, Brooke Jennett, Mollie LaFavers, Jon Jory, Jeremy Paden, Valerie Smith, Dean Staley, Justin Wright and Elizabeth Wong. Haunting and hilarious, Shakespeare in Mind takes a strange and wondrous trip through a dozen "post-modern Elizabethan" plays, poems and songs. Motifs of fear and murder, love and death, dreams and destiny weave in and out of our modern minds that Shakespeare now inhabits. And just like Will's own plays, this dynamic production interweaves comedy, romance, song and tragedy as it presents contemporary characters interacting with Macbeth and Duncan, Juliet and Titus Andronicus, Othello and Desdemona, and 20 other classic characters.  More...
