Much Ado About Nothing (헛소동)

Produced by Lauren Ash-Morgan

Musical Composition/Arrangement/Direction by Lauren Ash-Morgan

Lighting Design by Iain C. Culp

"This year's production, Much Ado About Nothing, goes in a brand new direction for our company.  In our tradition of alternating between tragedy and comedy, we are swinging the pendulum in the opposite direction from the dark, technically complex Titus of last year to bring audiences a lively, warm, fast-paced, playful experience, with a design and style reminiscent of Elizabethan stage practice."

The Winter's Tale (겨울 이야기)

April 15-30, 2017

Theater Egg and Nucleus, Daehangno theatre district, Seoul, South Korea

Directed by Michael Downey

Produced by Lauren Ash-Morgan

Costume, Set, and Sound Design by Lauren Ash-Morgan

Musical Composition/Arrangement/Direction by Lauren Ash-Morgan

Lighting Design by Iain C. Culp

Shakespeare's late masterpiece of reconciliation and forgiveness.

One of Shakespeare’s greatest plays: the tragi-comedy and late romance play The Winter’s Tale—a story of jealousy, loss, redemption, forgiveness, and reunion.

 

In a production that both builds upon and contrasts with the innovations of last year’s Much Ado About Nothing, director Michael Downey brings us two contrasting mythicized worlds of a stark, melancholic, and tragic Sicilia and a joyful, pastoral, comedic Bohemia, and a story that moves from the coldness of winter to the warmth and hope of spring.
