WOMEN OF WILL is Ms. Packer's groundbreaking exploration of Shakespeare's canon through the eyes of his female characters. It began previews Off-Broadway on January 29, opened officially to stellar reviews on February 3, and will continue to run through June 2nd.
WOMEN OF WILL explores the Bard's characters, focusing on the Women of Will, from Beatrice in "Much Ado About Nothing" to Lady MacBeth in "MacBeth" and everyone in between, giving a unique and exciting perspective on some of the most well-known classics in the English language. A true tour de force performance, Women of Will, is the masterful summation of Shakespeare & Company Founding Artistic Director Tina Packer's 40-plus years spent investigating all things Shakespeare; it is an engrossing exploration of the Bard's art and psyche as seen through the eyes of his female characters, and portrayed by two of Shakespeare's greatest modern interpreters - Ms. Packer and Nigel Gore.
Additionally, Ms. Packer's Women of Will, The Complete Journey - her five play series that explores and deconstructs William Shakespeare's female characters in depth - will begin performances at The Gym at Judson (243 Thompson Street) beginning the weekend of April 5, 2013. "The Complete Journey" will then be performed every other weekend rotating with Women of Will, the Overview.
Directed by Eric Tucker, Women of Will stars Tina Packer and Nigel Gore. The design team is Valerie Bart (Scenic & Costume Design), Les Dickert (Lighting Design), Daniel Kluger (Sound Design), Katharine Whitney (Production Stage Manager), and is produced by Sarah Hancock.
