Overview

A quintessential dramatic experience, in three flavors

Renowned for its historically informed and radical productions, this esteemed company hails from London’s rebuilt Globe Theatre―the venue Shakespeare called home. The troupe returns after its triumphant 2015 run of Romeo and Juliet, this time with triple the drama. Shakespeare’s Globe offers performances of Twelfth Night, The Comedy of Errors, Pericles, and with thrilling unpredictability, “audience choice” shows in which ticket-holders collectively choose one of the three plays, each performed by the same cast of eight.

PERICLES: The spirit of fairy tale is never far from the surface of Pericles, the first of Shakespeare’s late romances. Imbued with music, miracles, and the constant presence of the sea, this little-seen work submits its hero to a series of tragedies that culminate in something quite the opposite.

Please notePericles contains adult themes including a scene with sexual violence.
