Fenimore Art Museum

Reading, Playwright Talkback

Reading, Playwright Talkback

Offered on Consecutive Nights

Fenimore Art Museum will host a reading of The Venetians followed by a talkback with playwright Matt Barbot on Wednesday, August 24 and Thursday, August 25 at 6:30 p.m. in the Lucy B. Hamilton Amphitheater. Admission is free with a suggested donation.

A crossover between Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice and The Tragedy of Othello, Barbot’s play uses two classical outsiders — the Moorish general Othello and Jewish moneylender Shylock — to ask questions about immigration, assimilation, national identity, and what acceptance truly means. This project is made possible with the generous support of Art Bridges. Fenimore Art Museum is located at 5798 State Route 80. For more information, visit FenimoreArt.org.

Shakespeare on Love — Romeo and Juliet at the Fenimore

Shakespeare on Love

Romeo and Juliet at the Fenimore

Michael and Danielle Henrici as Romeo and Juliet in the Glimmer Globe Theatre production of the play.

The Glimmer Globe Theatre’s vibrant production of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet at the Fenimore Art Museum provides fresh evidence that local theater is alive and well in Cooperstown.

Staged by director (and Romeo) Michael Henrici amid the rocker versus mod backdrop of early 1960s Britain (think Jets and Sharks), the Glimmer Globe cast handles Shakepeare’s knotty, pun-driven 16th century English with aplomb. The cast is uniformly fine: as the Nurse, Mary Fralick almost steals the show; as the exuberantly abusive Mercutio, Nadel Henvile dominates the stage every time she is on it, so much so that we regret Mercutio has to die quite so soon. Peter Exton, as Friar Lawrence, is the perennial well-intentioned liberal who makes a mess of everything.
