The 2017 season will continue to put history on stage, starting with William Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure. Featuring a large cast, this charming classic comedy will run for two weeks in July on the Spectrum Theater Main Stage. Directed by HTG’s Artistic Director and Co-Founder, Don Rice.
Immediately following will be Oscar Wilde’s classic farce The Importance of Being Earnest. Originally billed as “a trivial comedy for serious people,” this delightful satire of Victorian era London society will perform in late July and early August in the Spectrum Theater Blackbox. Keith Oberfeld, HTG Co-Founder, will direct.
Closing the season will be a gender-reversed version of the acclaimed existentialist tragicomedy, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead by Tom Stoppard; which explains what happened to the two ill-fated characters from Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Opening in August on the Spectrum Theater Main Stage, Krista Pennington, HTG Managing Director, will direct.
