The Life and Death of King John will be at the Shakespeare Tavern from June 16-July 1, 2018.

If you’ve not familiar with the play, here’s the quick summary: “Shakespeare’s play King John was one of his most popular during Victorian times, partly because of its spectacle and pageantry. Today, however, it’s a rarely performed gem. John, King of England, was the son of Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine. He ruled in troubled times when England and France battled for supremacy. In 1942, George Orwell described it thusly: ‘With its intrigues and doublecrossings, non-aggression pacts, people changing sides in the middle of a battle, and what-not, it seemed to me extraordinarily up to date.'”

If you haven’t been to Shakespeare Tavern before, a tip: It’s an intimate venue, so you really can’t go wrong with any seats–I’ve tried all three price levels (Main Floor, Box Seats, Balcony), & I’ve had a good view of the production from each vantage point. The food is quite good, too–the apple crisp served during intermission is worth every calorie. Yum.

Want to go? You’ve got a few ways to save on tickets:

  • While they last, you can get discount tickets to select performances of The Life and Death of King John, thanks to a deal on Goldstar. As of today (June 8), discount tickets are available for most performances from June 14-July 1, 2018.
  • For regular-priced tickets, you’ll get the best deal on Thursdays, plus students & educators save $5 on adult tickets (excluding Saturday nights), and seniors (age 65+) & military with ID save $3 off the adult ticket price for most performances. If you can make it, you can snag $15 general admission tickets to the preview performances on June 14 or $20 general admission tickets to the preview performance on June 15, 2018.

FYI re: parking: Unless it’s a Sunday or another exempt time, they’re enforcing the meters in front of the theatre, so make sure to pay if you use them. Or you can park in the Emory parking deck across the street. If you give them your ticket stub when you leave, parking should be $5.

Shakespeare Tavern is located at 499 Peachtree St. NE, Atlanta.
