"Tragic, romantic, hilarious, and uplifting," The Winter’s Tale, according to press notes, "is a genre-bending masterpiece and one of Shakespeare’s most elegant and haunting plays. Directed by Rebecca Taichman (Sleeping Beauty Wakes, Twelfth Night), this gorgeous, music-filled, and magical classic celebrates redemption, reconciliation, and the mending of broken hearts."
The production will also include sets by Christine Jones, costumes by David Zinn, lighting by Christopher Akerlind, sound by Matt Tierney, original music by Nico Muhly and choreography by Camille A. Brown. The production stage manager is Alison Cote and assistant stage manager is Samantha Flint.
In a statement director Taichman said, “The Winter’s Tale is a study in tonal collision—sliding from tragedy to comedy and back again. We careen through the dangerous, moneyed Sicilian court, into the comic Bohemian countryside, and back again. The play contains multiple and ever-shifting webs of meaning. As a director, the visual and theatrical challenges are...well...absurdly difficult and wonderfully exciting.”
