Red Bull Theater is the not-profit Off-Broadway theater company specializing in plays of heightened language, with a unique focus on the Jacobean plays of Shakespeare and his contemporaries. In the 2012 season, building on its history of Revelation Readings and In The Raw Workshops, the company expanded its production repertoire to include world classics from all eras, starting with Jean Genet's The Maids. Red Bull Theater continues to produce large-scale works from Shakespeare's era and rarely produced classics from across the spectrum as it expands the number of full productions on offer per season, this year featuring a hit fall production of Ben Jonson's Volpone and a spring revival of August Strindberg's modern classic, The Dance of Death. Red Bull Theater embraces the imagination of theatergoers through intimate, imaginative productions of great classic stories.
Red Bull Theater has previously staged productions of Shakespeare's Pericles, the anonymous Revenger's Tragedy, Marlowe's Edward the Second, Middleton's Women Beware Women, Webster's The Duchess of Malfi, the Off Broadway premiere of Dekker, Ford & Rowley's Witch of Edmonton, a major Off Broadway revival of Jean Genet's The Maids, and the first Off Broadway revival of Volpone in over 50 years. All of Red Bull Theater's productions have enjoyed sold-out and often extended Off-Broadway runs.
Now entering its 10th Anniversary in 2013, Red Bull Theater's work has been recognized with multiple Callaway, Drama League, Lucille Lortel, and OBIE Award nominations and Awards.
Red Bull Theater has staged over 100 readings through its ongoing OBIE Award-winning Revelation Readings, named by the Village Voice "Best Play Reading Series," and has developed several new plays of heightened language and classics of the future through its In-the-Raw workshop program. Red Bull Theater reaches out to NYC students of all ages through its Direct Address education programs, teaching drama and literacy utilizing Shakespeare, as well as providing ASL-Interpreted performances and student matinees for all productions, and offering master classes in classical acting for professional development. Post-play "Bull Session" discussions with noted scholars following Sunday matinees of all productions are free and open to the public.
