Shakespeare Mini Festival to Open Season at Pearl Theater August 19 – September 4, 2016
Featuring Modern Versions of Romeo & Juliet and The Winter's Tale
The plays are adapted and directed by Jonathan Gonzalez who says, "We are excited to do our first repertory Shakespeare season at the Pearl! Following the success of last season's MACBETH, we are doubling down with the Bard and offering two different plays rotating different nights! Come see the speed, passion and fire of ROMEO & JULIET performed in a modern setting relevant to today's headlines. Come back and enjoy the magic, mystery, music, comedy, and epic storytelling of THE WINTER'S TALE set in a surreal dream world. The plays are performed in true repertory, with the same cast performing in both shows! Our Shakespeare shows are always under two hours, fast, fun, and audience -friendly for all ages!"
The shows feature outstanding actors from Houston, Pearland and surrounding areas.
