An Evening's Affair 2: Shakespeare's Betrayals

Directed by Francisco Torres, Emily Morrison-Weeks, Greg Hudson, Kyra McFarland, and Jason Compton

Madison Shakespeare Company's anthology series An Evening's Affair returns with an all-new selection of stirring and shocking scenes from the canon. Built this time around the themes of betrayal and backstabbing, this second installment of An Evening's Affair explores the darker side of friendships, the inconstancy of love, and the instability of hatred.

An Evening's Affair 2 delivers 10 different scenes from nine of Shakespeare's plays, including Macbeth, Hamlet, and Romeo and Juliet, as well as less frequently produced works such as King Lear and Titus Andronicus.

An Evening's Affair 2 is performed by Mike Dartt, Donald Dexter, Sarah Krahn, Betsy Wood, Jason Compton, Bryan Metrish, Kyra McFarland, Deanna Martinez, Laura Kochanowski, and Katherine Johnson.

Monster Boogie

Monster Boogie, the final Boogie written and directed by Rob Matsushita!

A "Boogie" is a show where we play spoken word or children's albums, and act them out onstage (going by the mindset of the children we were when we first heard them)

Monster Boogie is another vinyl-strewn romp through spoken word albums of the past, and this time, we're taking on horror, because you always save the best for last!

Ghosts, vampires, werewolves, serial killers, and the working-class heroes who bust them. This is your last chance to Boogie!

Produced by Broom Street Theater at Broom Street Theater, 1119 Williamson Street, Madison
