The Blackfriars Playhouse at the ASC Turns 10!
You might know that I dig the American Shakespeare Center, but I’ll tell you again. The ASC is fantastic! Located in Staunton, Virginia, not far from the University of Virginia’s campus in Charlottesville, the ASC is nestled in a sweet little historic town and boasts the only replica of a Jacobean indoor theater in existence (thus far), the Blackfriars Playouse.
On September 21, the Playhouse celebrates its tenth birthday, and they are sharing their presents with you! Show up at the theater that day and you’ll get free cake (cake!); see a performance of Henry V that night and you’ll get $10 off your ticket (the code is FREECAKE). Plus, you’ll get a nice talking to by the Co-Founder and Director of Mission (how cool is that title?) Ralph Alan Cohen before the performance that night.
If you’re in the area or just looking for a reason to take a midweek road trip–and who isn’t?–check out the ASC’s Blackfriars Playhouse.
