Richard III; Act 1, Scene 1
April 2, 2013
What is Shakespeare’s idea of tragedy? Is an audience seduced by Richard? What happens to the soul of ambition after the final prize has been won? Is there any sympathy left for this devil?

Their production of Richard III: Born With Teeth runs through May 4th. For details click here.
