The Classical Acting Academy presents Cymbeline at The Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre with previews tonight.
One of Shakespeare’s last plays, Cymbeline, is a whirlwind romantic fairytale that plunges into a world of political machinations, misogyny, thwarted love, jealous wagers, and princes lost at birth. Add an evil queen, a slick politician, and a headless corpse, and you are on a rollercoaster journey. Shakespeare brought to this play all the wisdom and tricks he learned over the course of three breathless decades on the London stage. It is sweet, sad, hilarious, wise, always relevant and always contemporary.
