American Players Theatre's 2019 season in Spring Green will feature August Wilson's "Fences" and Ibsen's feminist drama "A Doll's House" — plus contemporary playwright Lucas Hnath's sequel, "A Doll's House, Part 2."
APT announced an eight-show lineup Monday for its 40th season, running from June 8 to Oct. 6, 2019. It will announce a ninth show for October-November 2019 at a later time.
Yes, there will be Shakespeare. APT will perform "Macbeth" and "Twelfth Night," plus Lauren Gunderson's "The Book of Will," a comedy about the making of the First Folio (and consequently the preserving of Shakespeare's plays for our enjoyment).
Here's the lineup (specific dates will be revealed later):
"Twelfth Night," by William Shakespeare. Directed by John Langs, featuring Kelsey Brennan, La Shawn Banks and David Daniel.
"She Stoops to Conquer," by Oliver Goldsmith. Directed by Laura Gordon, featuring Sarah Day and Josh Krause.
