King Lear  | Open: 04/25/14 Close: 05/11/14
Broadway veteran and Titan Company Member Terry Layman returns to the Titan stage this Spring, assuming the title role in this searing new production of Shakespeare’s epic masterpiece. Both an intimate family drama about an aging king and his three daughters and an explosive political commentary, LEAR explores the most basic themes of our existence: love and loyalty; friendship and betrayal; destiny and the overwhelming inevitability of a life nearing its end. 

About the Company: TITAN Theatre Company

Conceived by friends Kevin Beebee, Lenny Banovez and Laura Frye with the goal of breathing new life and clarity into classical works of theatre through visceral, challenging, ensemble-driven productions, TITAN Theatre Company began performing in 2009 in a Tex-Mex Bar and Restaurant in Long Island City, Queens.  Since that time, TITAN's signature work - which includes distinguished takes on Shakespeare's A Midummer Nights Dream, Henry V, Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, Love's Labour's Lost and Macbeth - has been embraced by audiences from all walks of life, and the company is a proud contributing member to the exciting and innovative hotbed that is the Queens theatre scene.

Now concluding its critically aclaimed and award winning second full season and having established itself as one of New York City's hottest young theatre companies, TITAN remains steadfast in its mission to champion, risk, rediscover and inspire while delivering affordable, provocative and unparalleled theatrical experiences for even the most adventurous theatre-goers.

"Every now and then, when you're on stage, you hear the best sound a player can hear. It's a sound you can't get in movies or in television. 

It is the sound of a wonderful, deep silence that means you've hit them where they live." - Shelley Winters

Twelfth Night  | Open: 02/14/14 Close: 02/16/14
Twelfth Night is Shakepeare's hilarious comedy of mistaken identity and explores the universal impact of love, which is perfect for this holiday.

Aquila Theatre presents this great Shakespearean masterpiece infused with their unique brand of innovative and exciting theatricality. In fact, The New Yorker states, "Aquila’s productions are beautifully spoken, dramatically revealing and crystalline in effect.” Although contemporary , the show still encompasses the shipwrecks, duels, love and jealousy, disguises, suspicion, and ultimate reconciliation of Shakespeare's superb text. This new production promises to thrill and enchant.
