Four for Next Summer
By: S&Co - Dec 14, 2023
Shakespeare & Company announces the first four titles of the 2024 season, including a World Premiere and a musical exploration of Shakespeare’s language and music.
In addition to titles yet to be announced, Shakespeare & Company's 47th Season includes:
Shake It Up: A Shakespeare Cabaret
Directed by Allyn Burrows
July 2 through July 7
Tina Packer Playhouse
A waggish collection of Shakespeare’s stories and songs celebrating the heartbeat of the Bard’s words. For folks familiar with or new to Shakespeare, this limited run makes for a lively love letter to language. After all, if music be the food of love, let’s play on!
The Comedy of Errors, by William Shakespeare
Directed by Kate Kohler Amory
July 13 through August 18
Arthur S. Waldstein Amphitheater
The Comedy of Errors takes Shakespeare & Company’s outdoor mainstage this summer – Shakespeare's fast-paced and farcical story of mistaken identities that begins with two sets of twins separated by a storm at sea, and culminates in a raucous series of misunderstandings and mishaps.
The Winter’s Tale – An Enhanced, Staged Reading, by William Shakespeare
Directed by Tina Packer
August 21 through August 25
The Arthur S. Waldstein Amphitheater
The Winter’s Tale is an odyssey through a world where kingdoms collide, betrayal weaves its web, and love battles against all odds. Magic, mystery, and a man-eating bear feature as the story unfolds, examining the consequences of jealousy and the power of forgiveness.
Three Tall Persian Women by Anita Abdinezhad
Directed by Dalia Ashurina
August 30 through October 13
Elayne P. Bernstein Theatre
Golnar, a Punkish Iranian-American millennial, returns home to her mother Nasrin for the anniversary of her father’s passing, and walks into hoards of family memorabilia that her grandmother Mamani has moved in with her. This comedic and touching play is about generational differences, grief, control, and learning to let go; but more than anything, it’s a love story to immigrant mothers.
