Last summer The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey launched a new summer touring company called The Shrewd Mechanicals. The work of this tight-knit ensemble of five young professionals – four actors and a tour manager – met with much acclaim in their debut season and we are happy to announce that they will be back on the road in the summer of 2019!
Last year, the troupe presented a piece called Shakespeare Gumbo, and this season the hour-long program will focus on the special brand of temporary madness that overtakes people when they fall madly in love! As in 2018, this year’s production, entitled Verily, Madly, Thine will feature a wonderful array of moments from Shakespeare’s plays as well as a few selections from more contemporary authors who have been inspired by one of Shakespeare’s originals. Verily, Madly Thine also features a delightful sprinkling of music, and in total, these 60 minutes about falling in love will make you fall in love with this delightful and entertaining collection of scenes inhabited by the victims of Cupid’s arrows.
Don’t miss this wonderful quartet as they bring to life the joy, wit, poetry, and music of the world’s greatest playwright —and those he’s inspired.
SPECIAL NOTE: We are unsure where this event will be hosted. We expect to host it at our regular home, the Morristown Unitarian Fellowship. However, the property will be undergoing construction from June through September, meaning there is a chance the building will not be available. We expect to have a firm location set by July 15.
