Shakespeare's Richard II…on Trapeze

Just when I thought people had run out of new interpretations for Shakespeare, other than setting his plays in high school starring various young starlets and heartthrobs, The Sonnnet Repertory Theatre proves me wrong. Their current production of Richard II involves actors swinging around on the trapeze. It’s like seeing Peter Pan, but with a more involved plot.

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

After years of denial, Kiley has finally admitted to baring a striking resemblance to Velma from Scooby Doo. Instead of traveling in a van hunting ghosts, she prefers wandering on foot in search of tacos, cheap beer, and fake birds. Growing up in Portland, Kiley enjoyed the balance of urban and green spaces. Then she spent her four years at Ithaca College, and found herself craving more sprawling asphalt in her life. So she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where most of the buildings look like they're about to collapse. Kiley's favorite activities include: getting lost, crafting, sewing, biking, and geeking out at museums. Her love of taxidermy probably makes her a terrible vegetarian, but she doesn't care.
