Apocrypha? What does it mean? What does it have to do with Shakespeare? We continue our popular concert reading series "Two Plays, One Conversation" by pairing the rarely-performed Mucedorus with Shakespeare's rollicking comedy of mistaken identity A Comedy of Errors. Some people say that Shakespeare wrote the Elizabethan comedy Mucedorus and it should be considered part of his canon, but others argue otherwise. We present this unknown work with a confirmed Shakespearean comedy in the search for similarities and differences.
To help our audience experience and explore both, we have alternating readings of each play over two consecutive Sundays and Mondays, May 15-16 and May 22-23. Sundays have both 4pm and 7pm readings, while Mondays have 7pm readings only. Each reading has a talkback with New York scholars discussing what truly defines "Shakespeare" and whether it all really matters if a show has you laughing.
