About this show

Featuring Allyn Burrows, Tina Packer, and Tony nominee John Douglas Thompson!

A workshop production with actors on script, this project is an examination of what happens when an ambitious, arrogant general seizes power only to prove his complete ineptitude in a leadership role. Coriolanus, while successful in battle, learns that ultimately it is the people who choose their leaders, and in spite of joining with his arch-enemy to exact revenge on the city of Rome which betrayed him, Coriolanus is doomed to meet the fate he deserves. Director Daniela Varon once again joins forces with Tony-nominated, Drama Desk- and Obie Award-winning actor John Douglas Thompson after their acclaimed production of Red Velvet.
