WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The New Globe Theatre, Inc. presents a vivid and moving adaptation of Nathaniel Hawthorne's renowned novel, The Scarlet Letter, adapted for the stage by Stuart Vaughan (who also directs) with Marie Kreutziger. The tale of adultery, guilt, and revenge is set in colonial Massachusetts in the mid-17th century, dealing with the universal question of sexual repression and inner turmoil. The New Globe Theatre, Inc. adaptation of The Scarlet Letter basks in the grand language of Hawthorne, a master wordsmith, that actors and audiences will rediscover and fall in love with. His splendid language brings to the stage a nobility and musicality reminiscent of Shakespeare.
