“When beggars die, there are no comets seen;

the heavens themselves blaze forth the death of princes.”

After receiving praise from audiences and critics alike for their smash hit productions of Much Ado about Nothing and Romeo & Juliet in 2014, What Dreams May Co in partnership with Queens Shakespeare Inc. sets 2015 ablaze with controversial, brutal, modern re-imaginings of two of the classical theatre’s most horrifying yet soul searching works. Join us as we shine the looking glass on men worshiped as gods, vengeful gods walking amongst men, and the destructive might of men turned mob.  First up…Julius Caesar.

Director Chris Rivera (Director of 2014’s critically acclaimed Romeo & Juliet) brings audiences to an apocalyptic Rome.

Open: 07/10/15- Close: 09/20/15 MRS. SMITH'S BROADWAY CAT-TACULAR!
Mrs. Smith’s Broadway Cat-tacular!, is an all-singing, all-dancing “demented cabaret on acid.” 

Mrs. Smith is a woman on the verge of a cat-based breakdown — in search of her missing cat, Carlyle. To overcome the grief and rage of this “personal apocalypse,” she’s tried psychoanalysis, New Age therapies and, now, mounting a Broadway-style musical spectacular where her bizarre life story is re-enacted in delirious song and dance. With the aid of her dapper Broadway Boys, Mrs. Smith puts her laugh-out-loud spin on the perilous highs and lows of fame, fortune and superstardom. Featuring classic Broadway hits like “Cabaret,” “One Night in Bangkok,” “The Cat That Got Away” and many more, this More Information »

Adapted from the Jane Austen Novel.  

A tale of two sets of very different lovers and the pitfalls (some of their own making and some imposed by the strict hierarchical society that demands that everybody – especially women know their place) they encounter on their separate roads to finding each other. The mise en scene is early 19th century at war with Napoleon, while members of its intelligentsia fight a war in print about women’s’ duties in maintain family values and by extension the fabric of the nation versus a nascent feminist movement.
