Red Bull Theater To Feature A Zoom Reading And Plus Streaming Their Recent Production of The Alchemist!

I have touted Red Bull Theater’s skills at readings via Zoom in a number of previous posts and now they are going to grace us with a new one! This time it is John Marston’s The Wonder of Women. AND they are offering an on demand streaming version of their recent live performance: The Alchemist. Both offerings are pay want to can!

Here are the details and I urge you to sign up for both of them!!

“The more cold fate, the more thy virtue burned”

Sensational melodrama, overt eroticism, and splashes of wry wit color John Marston’s grimly dark Jacobean tragedy–inspired by events from Roman history. A dauntless princess is tested in a crucible of moral absolutes, ruthless ambition, and utter depravity. After her wedding night is interrupted by the onset of war, Sophonisba emerges from a series of conspiracies with heroic virtue as the “just shame of men” and multi-faceted “wonder of women.”

Directed by Nathan Winkelstein

Featuring Ro Boddie, Jason C. Brown, Robert Cuccioli, Cara Ricketts, Derek Smith, and Sarin Monae West

Additional details here…includes a bio of the author as well. Although this is pay what you can, you do have to make a reservation regardless. There will be a live reading and then the recorded reading will be available on line for a limited time:

This event will premiere LIVE on Monday, January 31, 2022.

A recording of that livestream will be available until 7:00 PM EST on Friday, February 3, 2022

A Side-splitting, Screwball FARCE of Magical Proportions.

London. 1610. It’s plague time again. When a wealthy gentleman flees to the country, his trusted servant opens his house to a pair of con artists and sets up a den of criminal capitalism. Claiming alchemical powers, the quick-witted trio fleece an onslaught of greedy sheep with their virtuosic ability to improvise amidst increasingly frantic comings and goings. It’s comic gold with dupes, double-dupes, duels, disguises, and a lucky flea named “Lewis”.

This new version of Jonson’s rowdy comedy classic is adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher and directed by Jesse Berger – ran Off-Broadway for strictly limited engagement from November 7-December 15, 2021.

Streaming On-Demand Available from February 1 – February 14 Only.
Pricing subject to change.

I am grateful that Red Bull Theater is streaming The Alchemist since I didn’t have the opportunity to travel to New York to see the live performances. So you can bet that I have my reservations placed for this unique streaming event!

Details on the play and reservation process are here!

I hope you have the opportunity to experience this fine theater group and you enjoy these streamed events. Wonderful entertainment for a cold winter evening.!
