Corleone: The Shakespearean Godfather
2257 N Lincoln Avenue Chicago
This mashup of classic Mafioso characters and Shakespearean prose is the answer to the question you always wanted to ask, "What if Shakespeare had written The Godfather?" The classic tale of power, love, intrigue and betrayal certainly contains the elements of a Shakespeare play and David Mann's clever script sets Mario Puzo's characters to iambic pentameter with terrifically comic results. With swordfights, conspirators and Fredo the fool, expect a poetic bloodbath of Shakespearean proportions. This production stars Nathan Pease and Jerome Marzullo and is directed by Christopher Kidder.
Presented by Commedia Beauregard
