HAIR July 14 – July 30

(18 and up, not recommended for children) Set in an East Village park in 1967, Hair is the musical story of a group of hippies who celebrate peace and love in the shadow of the Vietnam War. The loose plotline centers on Berger, the charismatic leader of the “tribe,” and Claude, a sweet-natured guy from Queens who’s about to be drafted. But the real star of Hair is the rocking score, which includes such classic hits as “Let the Sun Shine In,” “Aquarius” and “The Flesh Failures.”

‘Romeo and Juliet’ by Guerrilla Shakespeare Company
Sep 15 @ 8:00 pm
Photo by Burke Brown

Love’s labor is not lost in the brand new Guerrilla Shakespeare Company’s premiere production of the Bard’s most beloved romantic tragedy “Romeo and Juliet.”

Founded by Upstate actors Crystal Marie Stewart and Micah Miller, this unique theatre group is intent on breaking barriers and defying gender tropes by presenting classical works with a modern twist, and maybe even a gay sensibility.

In this mostly-female production last night at the Quest Brewing Company (one of four venues this renegade troupe will be commandeering over the next two weekends), Stewart, a well-known Upstate actor who this summer starred in both “Othello” at The Warehouse Theatre and “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” with the Upstate Shakespeare Festival, plays Romeo, a butch lesbian youth, opposite Giulia Marie Dalbec’s 14-year-old Juliet.

 

All shows start at 8 p.m. Tickets are $5. Visit the Guerrilla Shakespeare Theatre Company on Facebook for the latest updates.
