On Sept. 4, San Diego's Old Globe Theatre will bid farewell to their production of Cymbeline, helmed by Daniel Sullivan (Lincoln Center's Twelfth Night). The Shakespeare comedy-drama began previews July 25 and opened July 31.
Heading Sullivan's cast is Erika Rolfsrud as Imogen, a princess who must disguise herself as a man to escape punishment after she has been falsely accused of adultery. Rolfsrud attracted attention in last season's Love's Fire, a collection of new one-act plays inspired by William Shakespeare's sonnets, which toured the nation, eventually playing New York's Public Theater. Rolfsrud was featured in pieces by Wendy Wasserstein and Tony Kushner.
Other featured players include Tony Amendola, Dylan Chalfy, David Lansbury, Brian Lohmann, Aaron Krohn, James Saba, Peter van Norden and Brenda Wehle.
Other Shakespeare plays include Love's Labour's Lost, Much Ado About Nothing and The Tempest.
