Theatre for a New Audience presents
Fiasco Theater's production of

CYMBELINE
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Noah Brody and Ben Steinfeld

Fiasco Theater is an exciting company of actors whose fresh performing style and flair for Shakespeare have won national attention.

"If Romeo and Juliet is a comedy gone wrong, perhaps Cymbeline is a tragedy gone right," say Noah Brody and Ben Steinfeld, co-directors of Fiasco Theater's delightfully simple staging of the romance Cymbeline. As dizzyingly eventful a drama as Shakespeare ever conceived, Cymbeline tells of a beautiful princess separated from her beloved, the cruel step-mother who tries to foil her, a credulous husband duped by an adversary, an exiled nobleman who kidnaps a king's sons and a Roman invasion of Britain. All that and more is neatly tucked into a lightning-paced, streamlined production in which six versatile actors play 14 roles. A plain white cloth becomes a sail, a bed sheet and a toga. A trunk becomes a ship. And all the while, these magical theatrical transformations playfully deepen the drama's signature themes of error, deception and redemption.

$30.00 Balcony Tickets are all PARTIAL VIEW. Only a very limited number of these tickets are available.

Wheelchair and Wheelchair-transfer locations may be purchased by calling the New Victory Theater box office at 646-223-3010.

New Deal tickets are sold on a first come, first served basis along with all other tickets. There are no restrictions on the number of New Deal tickets available for each performance, but there is a limit of two that can be purchased via the phone or online.
