BAM will present the exclusive U.S. engagements of the Almeida Theatre Company's Richard II & Coriolanus. Tony Award-winning actor Ralph Fiennes, performing the title roles in repertory, will lead a stellar cast including Linus Roache, Oliver Ford Davies and Barbara Jefford. Shakespeare's historical verse tragedy Richard II traces the decline and fall of a young, willful ruler. Coriolanus, is the story of a legendary Roman warrior whose obstinate nature and obsessive sense of horror lead to exile, revenge and ultimately, his own death.
A special gala benefiting BAM will take place in conjunction with the September 6th performance of Richard II. For gala tickets, call Bam patron services at 718-636-4182
