Fiasco Theater’s Cymbeline Returns to New York
This past winter, the vivacious Fiasco Theater put the much-unloved Cymbeline on stage to rave reviews, and starting this weekend, they’re doing it again at the Barrow Street Theatre in Manhattan.
Directed by Noah Brody and Ben Steinfeld, this fast-paced production takes the crazy Romeo and Juliet meets Pericles mash-up for a ride and delivers a romp you’re not likely to forget. Best yet, the cast is young, attractive, and talented as heck, and they work as a finely-tuned collaborative team, so the chemistry is hot and the performances are rock solid.
Tickets aren’t cheap, but I’ve got a discount code, so you’re in luck. For performances through September 18, use code CYMTX3; for performances after September 20, it’s CYMTX4. The price jumps from $37.50 to $49.50 after September 20, so you might want to get in there early. You’re not doing anything after Labor Day anyway, so why not?
