Poisoning, beheading, cross-dressing, and betrayal become fresh and frisky thanks to Fiasco Theater’s inventive production of the epic romance Cymbeline. In a play that spans the Roman Empire, Shakespeare pits the noble intentions of Princess Imogen, pining after her banished husband, against the dastardly Iachimo, one of his most nefarious villains. A young ensemble of six versatile actors resolves the twisted fates of 14 characters with live music that ranges from a cappella to bluegrass. Don’t miss the West Coast premiere of what Ben Brantley of The New York Times called “The most truly enchanting Cymbeline I’ve seen.”
