Off Broadway on Flora Series: Mike Daisey - The Great Tragedies
Monologist Mike Daisey presents a dazzling new work: Over four nights Daisey explores the nature of our theatrical genetics and wrestles with the genius that penned Romeo & Juliet, Hamlet, Macbeth and King Lear and reveals how the heights and depths of his gifts have much to teach us about ourselves. From the sublime to the ridiculous, he’ll delve into what Shakespeare can mean to us today, and how this cultural religion changes and shapes our theatres. Each evening is unique and can be viewed independently, but all four together form an epic oral accounting of triumph and folly told with Daisey's dark and hilarious intensity.
Performances will take place at Hamon Hall inside Winspear Opera House
