The Tragedy of JFK (as told by Wm. Shakespeare)… What?!

Blank Theatre - Tragedy of JFK

Now here’s an original. The Blank Theatre is producing the world premiere of The Tragedy of JKF (as told by Wm. Shakespeare) beginning September 24 at the Skylight Theatre in Los Feliz. You heard that right. I can’t wait.

The production is conceived, adapted, and directed by The Blank’s founding artistic director Daniel Henning, who, I’m sorry to say, I did not know was a recognized expert on the JFK assassination. He has lectured at colleges and spent countless hours on talk radio at stations such as KABC, WABC, KFI, KPFK, WMAL, and others discussing the subject.

The Tragedy of JFK (as told by Wm. Shakespeare) is the story of the conspiracy to assassinate the 35th President of the United States and its aftermath using Shakespearian text to imagine what might have happened surrounding one of the most shocking events in American history. Fall theatre in L.A. has just gotten interesting.
