Backdoor opens the semester with complete Shakespeare

The Backdoor Playhouse opened its first performance of the semester last night, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged). The production was written by Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield. Even if you don’t like Shakespeare, you will find something to love in this production.

“If you love Shakespeare, you will like the show. If you hate Shakespeare, you will love it,” Director Mark Harry Creter said, talking about the show.

The show covers all of Shakespeare’s plays, often poking fun along the way. The show promises to be a rousing start for the semester as the Tech Players, Tech’s drama club, enters its 55th season.

Tech students, with ID, get in for free, for everyone else, admission is $10 for general admission, $8 for senior citizens and $5 for non-Tech students.

You can catch the show tonight at 8 p.m. in the Backdoor Playhouse located on the backside of the Jere Whitson Building. If you can’t make it tonight, the show runs Feb. 13, 15, 16, 19, and 20 at 8 p.m. The late show is Feb. 18 at 10 p.m. and the matinee is Feb. 20 at 2 p.m.
