Join us for the New York premiere of this dazzling exploration of Shakespeare’s two-decade-long investigation of Evil with Tony Award nominee Patrick Page. The star of Broadway’s Hadestown and familiar Red Bull Theater face (Coriolanus, The Duchess of Malfi) will brilliantly enact many of the Bard’s greatest villains, from Richard III to Prospero. Moving swiftly and chronologically, Page will trace the evolution of Shakespeare’s malefactors from the mere two-dimensional to the psychologically complex characters that heralded the modern psychopath.Hell is empty and all the devils are here.
Following the performance, Patrick will sit down for an insightful discussion with Michael Sexton, director of the Public Shakespeare Initiative. They’ll take questions from you, too.
TICKETS $47-67. By joining us for this special benefit evening, you’ll be treating yourself to a memorable evening of theater. You’ll also be supporting our upcoming production of Ben Jonson’s The Alchemist, Off-Broadway this spring.
“Red Bull Theater is a unique and vital force in New York Theater. I’ve loved working with them on singular productions of Coriolanus and The Duchess of Malfi and on dozens of Revelation Readings and workshops. My jaw drops constantly at the world-class talent they attract. I’m thrilled that this event will benefit their mission to revitalize the classics for all of us.” — PATRICK PAGE
