With a swift sword-stroke to Anne Boleyn’s neck, the Princess Elizabeth becomes a royal bastard. Elizabeth, age 3: “How hath it yesterday ‘Lady Princess’ and today but ‘Elizabeth?'"
Fresh from a triumphant run at BAM’s New Wave Festival, Karin Coonrod's texts&beheadings/ElizabethR is a dazzling theatrical self-portrait taken from
Queen Elizabeth’s own poems, letters, speeches and prayers.
"...a surprisingly graspable crash course in Elizabeth I and her times... a glittering mosaic portrait of a queen... This witty, hourlong performance piece was created by Compagnia’s founder, Karin Coonrod, a theater artist of far-reaching inventiveness."
Ben Brantley, New York Times.
