Around Town

Rev Theatre Company

Rev Theatre Company

Midsummer Night's Dream

REV Theatre Company

Photo by Sam Nagel

It’s time to get outside for some adventuretime cultural activities! One of my favorite summer pastimes is outdoor Shakespeare -- and this month Philadelphia is bursting with the bard. From UARTS own Rosey Hay’s REV Theater Company’s production of Hamlet in...a cemetery to Coriolanus in Clark Park.


REV’s Hamlet production will take place amongst the tombstones in Laurel Hill Cemetery, and picnics are encouraged with performances Friday, July 7; Saturday, July 8; Friday, July 14 and Saturday, July 15 at 8:00pm. This week you can catch The Word Players Theatre Co and their production of Midsummer Night’s Dream at Liberty Lands Park.


Hamlet:

A skull, a poisoned sword, a villainous uncle/King, a funeral (or a wedding?), a devoted friend, a drowned girl, and - “To be or not to be,” of course. And when a ghost appears, our iconic hero Hamlet is faced with a dreadful quandary in Shakespeare’s most famous play of love, loss and revenge.

Presented by New York-based REV Theatre Company, this contemporary, opulent production will be ‘revved up’ emphasizing the fusion of Shakespeare’s language and REV’s dynamic physicality, reflecting the intense emotional life of the play. Another of REV Theatre’s trademarks is the active involvement of the audiences in their outdoor productions (just as it was in Elizabethan playhouses) as witnesses to and participants in the events giving the play’s action great immediacy and excitement.
