Cymbeline marks director Rebecca Bayla Taichman’s return to STC, whose recent Twelfth Night was “gorgeously romantic… as brand new as a first kiss” (The Downtowner), and whose The Taming of the Shrew found “a satisfying quantity of heart in a play that can be made to seem merely playful” (Washington City Paper). The Shakespeare Theatre Company premiere of Cymbeline follows Imogen on her search for reconciled love against the backdrop of a colorful and magical journey. Forbidden love, mistaken identities, banishment and a magic potion— Shakespeare combines multiple styles in this endlessly inventive fairy tale.
