Goodnight, Desdemona (Good Morning, Juliet) by Ann-Marie MacDonald
The Penny Seats' 2011 summer season kicks off with Ann-Marie MacDonald's award-winning play, "Goodnight, Desdemona (Good Morning, Juliet)". In a rollicking, sideways homage to Shakespeare, the show catapults modern-day graduate student, Constance Ledbelly, into the plots of two famous Shakespearean tragedies, Romeo & Juliet and Othello. Can Constance prove her theory that the plays were meant to be comedies instead of tragedies?
Some bawdy humor, language, and kissing. Please use discretion when bringing children.

The Penny Seats aim to be hearty. In case of light rain, the show will go on. Please check the weather report and dress accordingly. We'll have some extra umbrellas on hand. Should heavy rain, thunder, or other severe weather threaten, the stage manager will stop the show and honor tickets at any subsequent performance.
There is much street parking around the outside of West Park But, for a nearly sure spot, the covered parking lot on the corner of Ashley and Ann Streets is just a block or two away. Also, the City has agreed to allow Penny Seats patrons to park in the Ann Arbor Open School parking lot off of Red Oak Rd.
