Fiasco Theater Will Perform William Shakespeare’s “Cymbeline” on Feb. 2-4 in Duke’s Reynolds Theater

“I have never seen a ‘Cymbeline’ as easy to follow as this one” wrote Ben Brantley in The New York Times. “For once, the play itself really is the thing. This plucky troupe credibly portrays incredible feats of derring-do; brings elaborate battle scenes to life, and organically blends music into the action. The lucid, modest performances let the comedy, poignancy and unlikely magic of Cymbeline surface gently and naturally.”
