|The Girlhood of Shakespeare's Heroines
| Open: 07/13/05 Close: 07/24/05
The Girlhood of Shakespear's Heroines consists of five monologues uniting to create one interconnected piece, much as Shakespeare's five acts create one play. In these five monologues, Don Nigro allows five young women, characters from Shakespeare's plays or significantly influenced by those same characters, to discuss as never before their views on love, life, sex and theatre.
Each eloquent speech illuminates the others while remaining distinctly its own. The ideas flow forth with a sense of urgency, eliminating preconceptions and pleading to be heard; as Don Nigro says, "The greatest act of love is to pay attention."
