Shakespeare’s Richard III tempests the John Cullum Theatre and delivers a powerful production.

Richard IIIThe American Theatre of Actors presented an unabridged account of Shakespeare’s Richard III. The talented troupe of actors delivered heartfelt performances, displayed comedic timing and brought patrons into the tale.

Thomas Leverton’s beguiling depiction of Richard III had audience members rooting for the villain until his madness proved destructive. Under James Jennings’ direction, the cast created a Shakespearean world where Leah Bloom, Sandra M. Bloom, Justin Clark, Eli Cox, Jane Culley, Marie Bridget Dundon, Yasemin Eti, William Greville, Alex Jaloza, Martin Maldonado, Lucy McKown, Uriel Menson, Adam Pine, David Remple, Stephen F. Smith, Richard Stelnik, Stephen Wagner and Jack Wink played to their audience.

Taking on the Bard, requires a love of his work and the performers delivered measure for measure. The cast provided humorous quips amidst the characters’ tragic defeats. Blending comedy and tragedy, the American Theatre of Actors delivered a royal performance.
