Coriolanus - A Live Theatre Broadcast

  • Woodstock Opera House 121 Van Buren Street Woodstock, IL 60098 (map)

Join us for A Live Theatre Broadcast of Coriolanus starring Andre Sills and Directed by Robert Lepage. Lepage is a genre-defying theatre artist and Sills, “a magnetic and imposing actor” (The New York Times). The stellar cast delivers “performances that send shivers down the spine” (The Globe and Mail). Lepage takes the story of the rise and fall of a legendary general who must face off against the angry Roman mob and infuses it with the energy of Occupy Wall Street and the Arab Spring. 

“By resetting dialogue-heavy scenes as talk radio gabfests and representing the uninformed mob as anonymous voices on social media, Robert Lepage helps clarify Shakespeare’s portrait of a world, like ours, overwhelmed with insincerity” (The New York Times). He “wrangles a difficult play into a heart-stopping narrative” (Chicago Tribune), “rendering a clear and cinematic version that’s riveting, invigorating and smart” (The Globe and Mail). “Rarely has Lepage’s reputation as a cinematic theatremaker been more earned” (Toronto Star).
