Romeo And Juliet  | Open: 02/13/14 Close: 02/16/14
Mercury Glass Theatre Company begins its season by taking on Romeo and Juliet with a condensed rendition of Shakespeare's most tragic love story. Verona is society built on mutual hatred and disgust whose ineffective spiritual rulers seem powerless to stop the city's violence. In the end it is not the well-meaning priest, the family's elders, nor the autocratic prince who is able to see past the hatred. The Most Excellent and Lamentable Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet presents us with arguably the most perfect distillation of the madness, impossibility, and ease of young love: a love which destroys all bounds and through which we may all be able to see past a few of our own.


Hangin With Satan  | Open: 09/13/13 Close: 09/21/13

Jimmy, a wanna be tough kid from alphabet city is in Tompkins Square park waiting for his girlfriend, Jennifer. But upon meeting her, awkwardly, Jennifer cancels their plans because a friend is in the hospital and needs her urgently. Jennifer then quickly runs off. Overhearing this is a confident looking young man, who tells Jimmy that Jennifer is lying and is actually about to hook up with a co-worker. Confused and angered by what the man has said, Jimmy lunges towards him but quickly finds himself powerless. The stranger turns out to be Satan, who begins an exhibition of his powers and knowledge of mankind to convince Jimmy to accept his true path in life and take over as Satan's successor.

Coriolanus (A Radio Version)  | Open: 04/29/13 Close: 04/29/13
Raised Spirits Theater is dedicated to "Classics, by, for, and with ALL sorts of people." We make theater with actors of all shapes, colors, sizes, challenges, and orientations. We cast color blind and we take apart classic literature to suit whatever point we wish to make. We do this because we believe Shakespeare and his contemporaries wrote their plays for us, the people who watch them - and we're committed to making that "seeing" visceral, immediate, and deeply impactful.

How can classical theatre help us understand our society today? Raised Spirits Theater's adaption of Coriolanus focuses on class relations, which exist both in Elizabethan times and in 21st century America. What has changed? What hasn't? And what can we learn from it?
William Shakespeare's tragedy, based on the life of the legendary Roman leader Caius Marcius Coriolanus, will be presented as a radio version by an eclectic group of young actors with the aim of seeking answers to these questions. Coriolanus, a powerful Roman warrior pressed by his mother Volumnia toward ever-rising expectations, finds himself at odds with his fellow citizens. While lethal and fearless in battle, he is also an overly proud aristocrat who bears contempt toward Rome's lower classes. The citizens refuse to support him and unite against his regime, culminating in a mass riot. Consequently banished from Rome, the fallen hero seeks revenge through an alliance with his sworn enemy, Tullus Aufidius. Come experience a retelling of one of Shakespeare’s lesser known meditations on monumental arrogance, aggression, virtue and war.

Caius Martius/ Coriolanus: Tyrone Dennis
Menenius Agrippa: Adam Redfield
Volumnia: Julie Berndt
Sicinius Velutus: Folami Williams
