The Play looks like a Phoebe Legere painting come to life: the play takes place in the late sixteenth century. The characters are elegantly dressed courtiers, scientists, artists, intellectuals, poets and ladies of Elizabeth I’s Court. Dancing, Singing, Shakespearean acting, love-making, Fencing, a play within a play, gender disruption, opulent costumes, gorgeous melodies and hilarious, Legere humor takes place throughout the show.

The Lower East Side’s most fabulous blond has been transformed into England’s most powerful redhead…Legere as Elizabeth I is showing off her famous hourglass chassis in costumes on loan from the Cloisters Medieval Collection, switching from RP British pronunciation to Loisaida Yiddish in a nano second.

Maestro Legere is shredding on her Lute, tickling the Virginals, and bringing down the house with her larger than life 4 octave range and hit songs. Rhys Tivey is Robert Dudley, her aristocratic, trumpet tooting heartthrob, showing off his shapely legs to perfection in gold tights and pantaloons. Zen Mansley, best known for his award winning work on the Teengage Ninja Turtles, turns in stellar performances in 5 roles, as William Shakespeare, a small time glove salesman and minor actor; Dr. Dee, Witch #2, the high school teacher, and Bitchy Woman of the Court.
