Production History

BREAKING THE SHAKESPEARE CODE  | Open: 05/23/19 Close: 06/02/19
“Shakespeare's poetic language has always been the argot of lovers, but never have two people been wooed and won by it so intensely than the characters in John Minigan's compelling Breaking the Shakespeare Code. It is one of the finest plays you'll see… Stephen Brotebeck has directed a brilliantly acted production of [John] Minigan's intelligent play about the coded language of reluctant lovers. [Miranda] Jonte and [Tim] Weinert electrify the stage like a modern Beatrice and Benedick with their exquisitely nuanced performances and onstage chemistry. In many ways, the play is a love letter to the power of Shakespeare's words as well as to the acting profession itself, and anyone who cares about either of these things will find this show exhilarating.” - Pete Hemstead, Theatermania




Eighteen-year-old Anna approaches Curt, a callous young acting instructor at the women’s college she attends, to ask him to coach her for an upcoming audition. Though initially dismissive, he agrees to work with her only when she survives his challenges to her work on Julius Caesar’s Portia. Their lives converge personally and professionally over the next sixteen years as they try to find the right moment and opportunity to finally reveal their true feelings for one another.
