You have never experienced Shakespeare until you have seen his work performed in the original Klingon. And Washington DC area residents have that opportunity this weekend at the WSC Avant Bard one-night special event "Shakespeare in Klingon II." More details below, plus a video report on the show.
Experience Shakespeare in the original Klingon at WSC performance
WSC Avant Bard (formerly the Washington Shakespeare Theater Company) is again returning to Klingon with a one-night special benefit this sunday titled “An Evening of Shakespeare in Klingon II: The Wrath of (Michael) Kahn.”
The event is to benefit the WSC and to celebrate the WSC’s artistic director Michael Kahn. The show will include performances of scenes from Shakespeare’s Hamlet, The Tempest and other plays. All of it will be in Klingon along with an English translation. The evening will also include a short talk with Klingon language inventor (and member of the WSC board) Marc Okrand.
Tickets for the benefit come in two flavors:
- For $250, customers receive a ticket to the Klingon performance, four flexible-use passes to WSC Avant Bard’s 2012-2013 season, and a ticket to the VIP reception with Michael Kahn and Christopher Henley following the performance.
- For $85, customers receive a ticket to the Klingon show, as well as two flexible-use passes to utilize through the remainder of the 2011-2012 WSC Avant Bard Season.
There is also a Groupon Discount Ticket for $42.
