Shylock

7 pm, Mar 03, 2013 | $15-$35
 
Shakespeare rocks, and Gareth Armstrong totally agrees. Armstrong wrote and directed Shylock, a one-man play, that muses on the trials and tribulations of Jews throughout history. The character of Shylock (think back to Merchant of Venice), the notorious money-lender with exorbitant interest rates, was craftily re-textualized by Armstrong into different scenarios—think Dracula and Hitler. Get this: the kicker is that Shylock is not a character in the play, merely the subject. It was this character who got people, centuries later, pointing fingers at Shakespeare, calling him anti-Semitic. Most people don’t realize that Shylock was, in actuality, a sympathetic character: “Hath not a Jew eyes? Hath not a Jew hands...” And it’s this ambiguity, villain or victim, that gives Armstrong material for his modern play. (Tess Cutler)

The Tempest

Friday, Jul 10, 2015
First of all, it is incredible how much Shakespeare we've been getting around here. Truly. Secondly, you'd be nuts to miss Santa Fe Shakespeare Society's production of The Tempest. Ship wrecks, sprites, weird-ass hunched over monster servants and love? It's a combo for success! We'd have made a Prospero joke here, but we're classy people and changed our minds.
