For some folks, the best thing about Shakespeare is that it makes a good fishing rod.

Advertising in StageWorks production programs is a great, inexpensive way to get that little boost to your company's visibility and/or to wish your favorite actor well in their performances. Our upcoming production, The Last 5 Years, will produce 4 performances (February 10-13, 2011) and the total program distribution is estimated at 500. The size of the program is 8.5” x 5.5”. The program will be printed in black and white except for the back and front covers. To place your ad we will need camera-ready artwork.

It seems ol' Bill is a popular cat these days. Julie Taymor isn't the only film maker tackling the works of William Shakespeare. Word on the street is that director Ralph Fiennes is in post-production with his updated version of Coriolanus. One of the more obscure works, the story is that of a man and his battle between doing right by his mother or doing right by his country. Fiennes will fill the title role, with Vanessa Redgrave as his mother, Volumnia and Gerard Butler as Tullus Aufidius, leader of the Volscian army.

The incomparable Julie Taymor has tackled the works of the Bard again, this time replacing a coveted male role with a woman. The Tempest is currently open in select theatres, and stars Helen Mirren as the sorceress, Prospera (otherwise known as Prospero in the original work). If the film festival buzz is any indicator, this will be yet another fantastic notch on the belt of Taymor.
