Cymbeline Opens Tonight

Cymbeline Opens Tonight

This evening marks the first of many Broadway openings during a very crowded week, thanks to all the reshuffling done to accommodate shows shuttered during the recent stagehands strike.

But the show opening tonight is one of a small handful that thankfully was open for business throughout due to its being staged at the not-for-profit Lincoln Center. And the opening did not need to be rescheduled.

A revival of William Shakespeare's Cymbeline, which was last produced on the Great White Way more than 84 years ago, formally opens this evening with a star-studded cast including Jonathan Cake, Michael Cerveris, John Cullum, Martha Plimpton and Phylicia Rashad. Helmed by Mark Lamos, the limited run revival only performs through January 6 at the Vivian Beaumont.

I took in a performance during the final week of the strike and will provide my SOB Review tomorrow along with my regular critics' capsule. We'll see how much I agreed with the critics on this rarely mounted play.

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
