Through November 25, 20212, you can see Titus Andronicus at the Shakespeare Tavern. Per the summary: “Human sacrifice. Murder. Rape. Mutilation. Cannibalism and suicide. Beneath Shakespeare’s first tragedy, the tale of an ancient Roman’s descent into madness, revenge and redemption, is the careful crafting of the master. With Titus Andronicus, Shakespeare questions the essence of sanity and explores humankind’s capacity for violence and spiritual purity.” Translation: Leave the kids at home.
Titus Andronicus is a bit heavy. To lighten up, check out Titus Clown, which will also be at the Shakespeare Tavern through November 17, 2012. Per the summary: “Three Clowns. One Precious Baby. One Giant Pie…And Flies. Titus Clown is a 45-minute hilarious blood bath complete with football, baby barf, a hole, gangster rap and devastating notions of murder and revenge.”

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. The food is quite good, too–the apple crisp served during intermission was worth every calorie. Yum.
FYI re: parking: They’re enforcing the meters in front of the theatre, so your best bet is to park in the Emory parking deck across the street. If you give them your ticket stub when you leave, parking should be $5.
