The city’s newest group of young professionals bringing a fresh perspective to classic theatre is Shakespeare in the Square . . . From Sunday, January 18th through Sunday, February 8, the group, known for their performances in Washington Square Park, will be presenting THE TRAGEDY OF ROMEO AND JULIET at the Gym at Judson (243 Thompson Street – between South Washington Square and 3rd Street) . . . Directed by Shakespeare in the Square co-founder Dan Hasse, the cast features: Elise Kibler, Constantine Malahias, Taylor Myers, Chris Dooly, and Jack De Sanz . . . The design team for THE TRAGEDY OF ROMEO AND JULIET includes sets and props by Phil Falino, costumes by Liz McGlone, lighting by Timothy Meola and musical direction by Chris Dubrow . . . Commited to recreating the original Elizabethan staging practices, including direct interactions with some of the audience and a small company of five (mostly male) actors, Shakespeare in the Square works closely with the text of the First Folio . . . Published in 1623, the First Folio is considered the only reliable source for about 20 of Shakespeare’s plays and a valuable resource text, even for many of his previously published works . . . via Glenna Freedman.
