Shakespeare Shorts Festival At AS220, Feb 15-17

TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING is Rhode Island’s first Shakespeare Shorts Festival, gathering together traditional and experimental work inspired by the works of William Shakespeare. The festival kicks off with a scratch night on February 11th at 7pm and runs Thursday February 15th through Saturday February 17th. Doors at 7pm, Show at 7:30.  

The festival jam packs each evening with six to eight acts. New experimental work is coming from artists such as David Higgins, Elizabeth Keiser, Ellen Zahniser, and Susan Bergeron. New Writing is coming from local playwrights Kevin Broccoli and James Celenza as well as singer-storyteller Rose Jermusyk. Featured acts include some of the best Shakespeare companies in state: Shakespeare to Hip Hop, What Cheer? Shakespeare Theatre Company, and The Rhode Island Shakespeare Theatre Company (TRIST). Wahlberg is also launching her own GenderQueer Shakespeare Project, a chance to consider new dynamics between some of Shakespeare’s most famous couples.
