Mondo (Titus) Andronicus as performed by Molotov Theatre Group has come and gone, but the legend of this brutal and beastly adaptation lives on. The play has been finished for a couple of weeks now and the Washington Post is still finding reasons to point it out:
“Molotov’s most recent production, “Mondo Andronicus,” was a quick and dirty adaptation of Shakespeare’s goriest play that included self-mutilation, stabbings and the startlingly realistic removal of a tongue.”
And this is actually part of a positive review for a very unique theater company. This type of theater is not for everyone, but thrill seekers will love it, and anyone that saw Mondo Andronicus will most likely never forget it.
