"Brilliant!" say audiences about the ASC's new production of Richard II now playing at the Blackfriars.
The ASC's final production of the 2008 Summer/Fall Season also kicks off our multi-year series “The Histories: The Rise and Fall of Kings.” Richard II, directed in its premiere at the Blackfriars by the ASC’s Founding Executive Director Ralph Alan Cohen, opens on September 12.
Richard II is an exploration about the nature of greatness that is timely fare in a presidential election year. Pitting King Richard II, a man of words, against Bullingbrook, a man of action, Shakespeare raises the art of language to new heights while reminding us that, like the rest of us, rulers “feel want, taste grief, need friends.”Read more, including cast lists and director's notes.
