Shakespeare's La Florida

 

 

 

 

We are actively preparing the 2021-22 series of reinterpreting Shakespeare and other classical theater infusing each production with Florida history.  Chapter V is 'Merchants of Venice'  - retelling the stories of a contemporary tropical society from 1930-1950 including the risks, relationships, retaliations and ultimate resiliency of immigrant communities.  Previous projects are:  'Romeo and Juliet' (Ch I), 'The Tempest too' (Ch II), an urban tropical adaptation 'mash-up' of Romeo & Juliet and The Tempest  'La Tormenta' (Ch III) 'Julia + Roselo' (Ch IV) - a 'Spanish Shakespeare' pilot project adapted from 'Castelvines y Monteses,' Lope de Vega's Romeo and Juliet, with history from the Age of Discovery and the legacy of Florida's first peoples of La Florida.  

Below are just a few of the portraits taken of the past chapters.
