[exp] [/exp]The Life and Death of Richard the Second will be at the Shakespeare Tavern from April 28-May 13, 2018.
If you’ve not familiar with the play, here’s the quick summary: “‘This throne of kings…this England.’ The Shakespeare Tavern’s journey through all of Shakespeare’s History plays continues with Richard II. Watch as Richard lies and steals his way to riches in order to finance his invasion of Irish lands. Watch as Bolingbroke and Northumberland unite against Richard, ultimately leading to Richard’s imprisonment and Bolingbroke’s crowning as King Henry IV–all of which will lead us to the next chapter of the story.”
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 Richard the Second, thanks to a deal on Goldstar. As of today (April 23), discount tickets are available for select performances from April 26-May 13, 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 April 26 or $20 general admission tickets to the preview performance on April 27, 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.
