POETRY, ROMANCE, FOLLY, YOUTH!
Coming soon, the Summer Cabaret brings to exhilarating life Sarah Ruhl's acclaimed adaptation of Virginia Woolf's novel. Orlando is the handsomest young man in the Elizabethan court, but he longs for something more... His journeys will take him across boundaries of time, geography, and gender, as he she searches for love, meaning, and, above all, poetry. Join us one final time as the Rough Magic Company creates a physical, lyrical, musical poem for the stage.
