Onstage @ The Alden

American Shakespeare Center on Tour's

“Julius Caesar”

Tuesday, Mar. 29, 7:30 p.m. (Live music begins at 7 p.m.)

$35/$20 MCC district residents

To purchase tickets, visit www.aldentheatre.org or call 1-866-811-1111.

 

In this profoundly moving, breathtaking and deeply human play, Shakespeare shows us a world on fire; a world turned upside down; a world where some of history’s most famous men commit horrific crimes in the name of patriotism and honor. “Julius Caesar” is a dazzling thrill ride of betrayal, violence and perhaps most surprisingly, love.

 

 

Onstage @ The Alden

American Shakespeare Center on Tour's

“The Importance of Being Earnest”

Wednesday, Mar. 30, at 7:30 p.m. (Live music begins at 7 p.m.)

$35/$20 MCC district residents

To purchase tickets, visit www.aldentheatre.org or call 1-866-811-1111.

 

Oscar Wilde’s brilliant and wicked comic masterpiece defines wit and style. This “trivial comedy for serious people” is at once blissfully silly and outrageously shrewd. One-hundred twenty years after its first performance, “The Importance of Being Earnest” continues to delight audiences with its playful language, charming characters and biting look at contemporary society, and ASC on Tour’s production will have you in absolute hysterics.
