Shakespeare in the Parking Lot Wraps its Summer Season
Shakespeare in the Parking Lot is wrapping up its latest affair with a lesser known production from the Bard’s canon. Continuing the Lower East Side tradition, the Drilling Company is back at the Clemente for three final performances this week – to perform Two Noble Kinsmen.
For this iteration, director Hamilton Clancy has taken the story of Thebes and Athens and transformed it into a spy caper – complete with Russians, a corporate magnate, and an Interpol spy-catcher.
Your two last chances are tonight and tomorrow night.
As previously noted, the uniquely neighborhood event spent twenty seasons entertaining locals in the former municipal car park at Ludlow and Broome Streets, before ending with a performance of Othello in August 2014. Development of Essex
Crossing forced a reckoning, and the troupe rebounded at the Clemente one year later.
The Drilling Company has produced the beloved street theatre tradition since 2005.
