Jul 14th – 30th: Empty Chair Theatre takes on Shakespeare’s Bloodiest Play – Including a performance at the Folgers in DC!

Titus is a tough, violent, and bloody play. After seeing it for the first time I had to hit the keyboard and put down my thoughts about who were Shakespeare’s most evil characters, with Aaron from Titus being right at the top  (link: Shakespeares evil). Now that I’ve seen it few times, I’m always interested in seeing how this tragedy of Titus will play out with each new company. And thus we have the Empty Chair Theatre, a group that performs Shakespeare’s works based out of our own little Alexandria Virgina. I had the pleasure of seeing them put on Twelfth Night last month (Review: Twelfth Night), and was dazzled by their fun, and unique take on the Bard.

So if you get a chance, this troupe can use all the support it can get, and as a special bonus, add July 16 to your calendar. That’s the day they’ll be performing Titus Andronicus at the Folger Shakespeare library stage. This will be a benefit performance to help raise money for the Empty Chair Theatre Company, to help them with their community and educational outreach programs…

When: Jul 14 – 30, 2011
