The Acting Company Takes On Mark Twain and Shakespeare In Repertory Off-Broadway

News   The Acting Company Takes On Mark Twain and Shakespeare In Repertory Off-Broadway The Acting Company's New York season will present two classic works in repertory, one a comedy, the other a tragedy: a newly commissioned adaptation of Mark Twain's A Connecticut Yankee in Arthur's Court; and a new production of Macbeth.

Performances will run April 1-12 at Off-Broadway's Pearl Theatre.

Macbeth's director Devin Brain has said audiences can expect a "sleek and accessible production" of Shakespeare's famed, dark and powerful play.

Adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher, Connecticut Yankee sees Mark Twain time travel from the 19th century to 6th century England's medieval times, encountering the likes of Lancelot, Guinevere and Merlin.

The Off-Broadway presentation is in conjunction with the Acting Company's 42nd national tour. Founded in 1972, the award-winning company has toured 48 states and 10 foreign countries.

The Pearl Theater is located at 555 West 42nd St., New York. Tickets are available online by visiting pearltheatre.org or calling (212) 563-9261.
