Hot on the heels of their smash hit touring production of AS YOU LIKE IT, the newly-minted Rogue Ensemble Theatre Company is set to take up the challenge of creating socially distanced theater and tackle Shakespeare's most violent tragedy, TITUS ANDRONICUS. Adapted by Rogue Ensemble Artistic Director Christine Reisig and directed by Joey Nasta, this new socially-distant production reimagines the Bard's bloodiest tale as a macabre, ghostly requiem on the horror of revenge in time for the Halloween season.
Performed in front of the steps of Grant's Tomb, TITUS channels a corrupt, crumbling republic haunted by the ghosts of its failed caretakers. As the violent demon of revenge overtakes each character, the Romans and Goths slowly lose themselves in the carnage with actors shifting from role to role until the violence leaves little to be recognized.
In their efforts to be compliant with social distancing practices as outlined by Gov. Cuomo in light of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Rogue Ensemble Theater Company will be taking measures to ensure the health and safety of its actors and audiences. Actors maintain at least 6 feet distance from each other or wear facial coverings throughout the performance and remain more than 6 feet away from the audience at all times. Audience seating will be limited and arranged to allow proper social distancing. Hand sanitizer will be made available for attendees. Attendees will have their temperatures taken upon arrival. Masks will be required in order to attend.
