Marin Shakespeare Company - Hey nonny nonny and wild Shakespeare!--Pacific Sun

Richard III

Jerion Monroe as Richard III and Michelle Pelletier as Lady Ann

 

 

With Bob choosing to direct the season’s comedy, a guest director was sought for this, our first history play. Ken Grantham, a leading Bay Area theatrical talent who had directed at the California and San Francisco Shakespeare festivals and at the Magic Theatre which he co-founded, was tapped.

As a bonus, Ken happened to be married to a luminous actress, the lovely and powerful Kimberly King. As it turned out, this real-life couple had dream roles of their own: Shakespeare’s spatting, spirited duo from Much Ado About Nothing, Beatrice and Benedick. Our first expanded season was turning into a true actor-inspired endeavor.

 


The company carouses


Jarion was fantastic in the title role of Richard – persuasively seductive while brilliantly wicked and deeply disturbed. 

 

 

Kimberly King was a stunning Queen Elizabeth and a total cast of forty actors played 87 roles. Bob Currier, appropriately, as befitting the Artistic Director, took on the role of King Edward. Judi Quick, a dear and massively talented actress, drove three hours from the Mendocino coast to play a poignant ‘Mad’ Margaret.
Richard II and Mad Margaret

 

 



This was the first season for Lucas McClure, soon to become a regular on the Forest Meadows stage, as well as for Danny Kovacs, Jack Halton, Michael Oakes and young Matt White who played the boy Prince Edward.
