This stage adaptation of Shakespeare’s tragedy stars Tony award nominee Forrest McClendon who thrilled the Philly audience last year with his powerful performance as Othello at the Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre.

forrest-mcclendonI had the pleasure of meeting Forrest after a performance of the aforementioned play last year; he is a warm and charismatic soul (and a brilliant talent) with a contagious enthusiasm for performing Shakespeare.  So, I look forward to witnessing his transformation into yet another Shakespearean tragic figure.

Tickets are selling quickly, so purchase yours now.  Student discounts are available, so I’m going to snag one ASAP!
