“Titus Andronicus” By William Shakespeare, Directed by Scott Kaiser
Devastatingly intrepid in his use of high drama and violence, Shakespeare has fun with malice, mayhem and revenge in this play as he explores the toxicity of power. This production slashes away elegantly with unabashed commitment to Shakespeare’s dark imagination. Go!
