Richard II

This production of Shakespeare's not-frequently-seen tragedy, directed by Christina Gutierrez, is partly an exercise in probability, as which actor – Kevin Gates or Aaron Black – plays which main role will be decided each night by the toss of a coin. Holy Two-Face, Batman, these are some Bardic shenanigans! Note, though, that the Poor Shadows of Elysium company is otherwise quite serious here. Thu.-Sat., Feb. 21-March 9, 8pm. $15.
