Bard on the Beach
Due to popular demand, we’re excited to announce that seven shows have been added to the run of Coriolanus, which opens this Sunday. The closing night of this immersive, cutting-edge play will now be Saturday, September 21.
Says Artistic Director Christopher Gaze: “This is the first time we have produced Coriolanus at Bard, so there is a great deal of excitement about it, especially with the extraordinary artist Moya O’Connell in the title role. I’m thrilled that there is so much anticipation – it’s a terrific play and Dean Paul Gibson’s immersive production is remarkable. We’re excited about being able to share it with more people, given the added capacity of these new performances.”
The seven new Coriolanus performances are scheduled for:
- Tuesday, September 10 at 7:30pm
- Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, September 17-21 at 7:30pm
- Saturday, September 21 at 2pm
Note: there will be a Talkback Tuesday Q&A session with the actors following all Tuesday performances.
