The Bridge Project Travels Back Across the Pond
April 21, 2010 § Leave a comment
If you missed these two plays in New York, or if you live in London, you’ve been given a second chance. William Shakespeare’s The Tempest and As You Like It are moving across the pond from the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) to London’s Old Vic Theatre as part of The Bridge Project.
In case you’re not familiar, The Bridge Project is “a three-year transatlantic partnership uniting BAM, The Old Vic, and Neal Street Productions.” Sam Mendes directs a group of highly accomplished actors from the U.K. and the U.S., including Michelle Beck, Christian Camargo, Ron Ciphas Jones, Stephen Dillane, Alvin Epstein, Juliet Rylance, and Thomas Sadoski, in this, his second season with the project.
Both plays will play in repertoire throughout the run at The Old Vic Theatre, scheduled for June 12 through August 21. See the website for the complete performance schedule and to book tickets online or by phone.
