Red Bull Theater, hailed as “the most exciting classical theater in New York” by Time Out New York, is the not-profit Off-Broadway theater company specializing in plays of heightened language, with a unique focus on the Jacobean plays of Shakespeare and his contemporaries. Charles Isherwood in The New York Times called Red Bull Theater “a troupe that lovers of classic theater should put on the must-watch list.” Their productions of Pericles, Revenger’s Tragedy, Edward the Second, Women Beware Women, Duchess of Malfi, The Witch of Edmonton and The Maids all enjoyed extended sold-out Off-Broadway runs.
