The Beacon presents all 37 Shakespeare plays in 97 minutes with just three actors. It’s fast-paced, witty, and fun – and you might even get to play a part or two – impromptu.
The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) runs from Jan 10-19 at The Beacon, 445 Main St., Beacon. Performances are at 8 p.m. on Jan. 10, 11, 17 and 18, and at 3 p.m. on Sundays Jan. 12 and 19. Call 845-226-8099 or visit thebeacontheatre.org for tickets. This is part of 4th Wall Productions’ 2013-14 season that runs until June.
Brian Apfel, Director of Social Media and Online Initiatives at Marist College, is directing and acting in this production.
Apfel is joined by veteran regional actors Jeff Battersby, premiering at The Beacon for the two-week run, and Pat Manning, also known as the retired New York State Assemblyman. The show is rarely performed in the area due to the number of roles and fast-faced structure of the show that challenges even the most acrobatic of actors.
