In accordance with the latest COVID-19 guidance from New York State and Mercy College, masks and proof of vaccination for audience members (ages 5 and up) will be required.

“A distinctive theatrical experiment — part autobiography, part classroom lecture, part vaudeville show, along with hefty chunks of Shakespearean poetry and drama.” — The New York Times

Acting Shakespeare is a co-production with our Arts Partner Irvington Shakespeare Company.
