Cymbeline Celebrates Opening Night

Fiasco Theater's Noah Brody, Andy Grotelueschen, Ben Steinfeld, Emily Young, Jessie Austrian, and Paul L. Coffey

Fiasco Theater’s Cymbeline began its third run in two years on Thursday, September 8, at The Barrow Street Theatre.  Following the show, guests gathered for a party to celebrate the new life for the acclaimed production – thought to be New York’s first commercially-produced Off-Broadway production of Shakespeare.  Among the attendees were David Cromer, Cherry Jones, Michael Shannon, Sean Taylor, John Douglas Thompson, and Jacki Weaver.

In a recent New York Times feature on Fiasco Theater and Cymbeline, Alexis Soloski wrote, “The…show is as lucid as it is imaginative—and often nearly magical.” Ben Brantley of The New York Times included the production among his recent blog post When a Bare Stage Fills The Theater. “This version of Cymbeline,” he writes, “is the clearest and most truly enchanting that I’ve seen.”

The production will play through December 31. For tickets and more information, click here.
