First Folio Live at NYHS 6/11

Posted on Jun 9, 2016 in Events, Uncategorized

Frog & Peach Theatre Company brings the beauty of Shakespeare and the thrill of live combat to the New-York Historical Society with special live performances of Romeo & Juliet, starring Collin Blackard, Lenny Ciotti, Ellie D’Eustachio, Jonathan Reed Wexler, & Marcus Watson.

Join us Saturday June 11th in The Robert H & Clarice Smith New York Gallery of American History (First Level) at the world-renowned New-York Historical Society for a thrilling combat scene from this beloved play at 1:15, 2:15, & 3:15 pm.

Each performance is followed by a fun demonstration of weapons like those used at The Globe, how Shakespeare’s First Folio “directs” the action, and a question and answer session about how stage combat has changed .

All performances are FREE with Museum admission!

Combat choreographed by Marcus Watson.
Directed by Lynnea Benson.
