“We know how much our audiences want to return to the theatre. Just as we don’t always see the magic that happens offstage, there are enhanced safety policies and procedures in place so audiences can focus on and enjoy what’s onstage,” shares Executive Director CHRIS JENNINGS. “Shakespeare Theatre Company has worked with all the theatres in the region on a shared policy requiring patrons to show proof that they are fully vaccinated. At STC, all of our staff, actors, and anyone entering our spaces are fully vaccinated as well. We are so excited to welcome everyone back. ”

Creative Consultation for the production is by five-time Tony Award nominee DAVID LEVEAUX (Nine; Romeo & Juliet on Broadway; NBC’s “Jesus Christ Superstar Live”). Casting will be announced soon.
