Shake The Room is part game show, part celebration and all kinds of exciting. We’ll be honoring Boomerang’s 20 years of free Shakespeare productions in parks throughout New York
City with scenes and highlights from 18 different productions. But the audience controls the action, picking from a “menu” what they want to see next and maybe even adding their own spin…! It’s
an interactive performance bash that honors 20 years of success, and ignites the passion for the future!
Featuring 20 scenes from Shakespeare plays, directed by Brian Gillespie, Linda S. Nelson, Philip Emeott and Cailín Heffernan. And a limited number of patrons will attend a champagne reception before the performance.
All proceeds benefit Boomerang's Shakespeare programs in New York City. Tickets can be purchased here.
