Glimmer Globe Theatre announced it will return to staging live performances this summer at Fenimore Art Museum and The Farmers’ Museum.
Glimmer Globe founders Michael Henrici and Danielle Henrici and Fenimore/Farmers’ Performing Arts Manager Mike Tamburrino announced Saturday, April 3, that the company will stage outdoor theater this summer, following a year’s hiatus because of the coronavirus pandemic.
“If all the world’s a stage, for heaven sakes, let’s get back on it,” Danielle Henrici said.
The performances will include main-stage performances of “The Compleat Works of Wllm Shkspr (Abridged)” at the Lucy B. Hamilton Amphitheater at the Fenimore in the town of Otsego. The show will run from Wednesday, July 14, to Sunday, Aug. 22.
The play by Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield was the first show performed by Glimmer Globe Theatre when it debuted a decade ago, the Henricis said.
“It means the world to us to return to this play as we return to the stage,” Danielle Henrici said.
“This is a show that appeals to everyone, even people who claim they don’t like Shakespeare,” she continued.
“It is also an incredible way to introduce children and teens to The Bard.”
