Coeurage Theatre Company, LA’s ‘Pay What You Want’ Company, has announced the second production of its 2014 season, Andronicus, adapted and directed by Coeurage artistic director Jeremy Lelliott. There will be one preview performance on Friday, July 11 at 8pm and opening is set for Saturday, July 12 at 8pm, with the play continuing through August 17 at Coeurage’s new home, the Lyric-Hyperion Theatre & Cafe in Silver Lake.
Deliciously twisted humor gives way to unexpected poignancy in this bold take on William Shakespeare’s original horror play The Lamentable Tragedy of Titus Andronicus. Reveling in the darkest corners of human nature, Andronicus is a streamlined adaptation of Shakespeare’s most violent play; the bard’s masterful dramatic structure and brutal tale of revenge have been carefully preserved.
The cast will feature Brian Abraham, Anthony Mark Barrow, Ted Barton, Gabriel Di Chiara, Kaitlyn Gault, Doug Harvey, Mark Jacobson, Zach Kanner, John Klopping, Nardeep Khurmi, TJ Marchbank, John McKetta, Katie Pelensky, Paul Romero, Chris Salazar, and Rebekah Tripp.
The design team includes Dean Cameron (scenic design), Tito Fleetwood Ladd (lighting design), Kara McLeod (costume design), and Joseph V. Calarco (sound design). Choreography is by Tiffany Cole with fight choreography by TJ Marchbank. Stage manager is Emily Goodall.
All seats are available on a Pay What You Want basis, and may be reserved online at www.coeurage.org/tickets or by calling (323) 944-2165. The Lyric-Hyperion Theatre & Cafe is located at 2106 Hyperion Avenue in Los Angeles, 90027. Street parking is available.
