Fiasco Theater's six-person production of Shakespeare's late-career fairy-tale play, Cymbeline, acclaimed for its run at midtown's New Victory Theatre earlier this year, plays an 18-week commercial engagement at the Barrow Street Theatre.
Co-directed by Fiasco Theater's Noah Brody and Ben Steinfeld, Cymbeline's roles are performed by the original company: Jessie Austrian, Paul L. Coffey, Andy Grotelueschen, Emily Young and Brody and Steinfeld.
Cymbeline "tells of a beautiful princess separated from her beloved, the cruel step-mother who tries to kill her, a credulous husband duped by an adversary, an exiled nobleman who kidnaps a king's sons and a Roman invasion of Britain," according to TFANA. "In this lightning-paced production, a plain white cloth becomes a sail, a bed sheet, and a toga and a 'fabulous' trunk becomes a bed, a throne and a cave. The transformations are magical and playful and true to the play, deepening its themes of illusion, deception and belief."
Here's a look at the production:
