Episode 81 - Shakespeare and Fairy Tales

February 6, 2017

Those attending Rubber City Shakespeare Company’s “Cymbeline,” which opens this Friday, Feb. 10 at the Well CDC, will get to see an evil stepmother, a poison apple and a young heroine who takes her destiny into her own hands. It's a fairy tale adventure, written long before Disney came along. Dane Leasure and Casey Robinson stop in to talk to Cody and Chris about this lesser known Shakespearean play, along with what it takes to put on productions in a former church sanctuary in Akron’s Middlebury neighborhood. The company offers unique takes on the Bard’s body of work, including an upcoming twist on King Lear. Visit www.rubbercityshakes.com/tickets for info.
