About this show

FINAL 2 WEEKS! Obie Award-winning actor Michael Cumpsty returns to CSC to tackle Shakespeare's Richard III, the original man you love to hate. Perhaps western literature's grandest villain, Richard has tantalized audiences for over 400 years. "IRRESISTIBLE! MORDANTLY WITTY AND SEDUCTIVELY CHARMING! MR. CUMPSTY IS A CHARISMATIC RINGMASTER. The production reaches a lively zenith, roping us directly into the political theatrics with mordant wit and seductive charm." - The New York Times "Deliciously Devious...Cumpsty claws his way to the crown with consumate comic aplomb." - Time Out "IS THERE A BETTER SHAKESPEAREAN ACTOR IN AMERICA?" - The Wall Street Journal "NOW IS THE RICHARD OF OUR CONTENT! "FAST-PACED AND ENGROSSING! A SLEEK AND HANDSOME PRODUCTION WITH AN EXCELLENT SUPPORTING CAST!" - New York Post "Michael Cumpsty delivers another muscular Shakespearean performance...Brilliant and Cunning." - Variety
