Shakespeare Broadcast Live
National Theatre Live broadcasts ‘Coriolanus,’ William Shakespeare’s searing tragedy of political manipulation and revenge, at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute on Thursday, January 30, at 2 p.m. Tickets are $18 ($15 members and students). Broadcast from London’s intimate Donmar Warehouse theatre in Covent Garden, the production stars Tom Hiddleston in the title role and Mark Gatiss as Menenius. Josie Rourke directs. When an old adversary threatens Rome, the city calls once more on its hero and defender: Coriolanus. But despite his hero’s welcome, Coriolanus gains enemies, too. Coriolanus must confront the march of realpolitik and the voice of an angry people, including two clever tribunes who eventually force him into exile. The Clark is located at 225 South Street in Williamstown, Mass. For more information, visit clarkart.edu or call 413-458-2303. Due to the construction activity and limited parking at the Clark, visitors should plan to arrive twenty minutes before the performance.
