Savoring the Brew: A Taste of Shakespeare’s Women


The Town & Gown Players present a new twist on Shakespeare under the lead of Dillon Nelson, who will make his T&G directorial debut. Savoring the Brew stars the three Romani sisters—played by Kris Schultz, Brittanny Krause and Rose of Athens Associate Artistic Director Danielle Bailey Miller—who sing and dance their way through explorations of love, loss and finding strength in a male-dominated world. The script, written by Mary Emily O’Bradovich, Michelle Jordan and Christina Purcell, is part of the Town & Gown Second Stage Series, which presents lesser-known, smaller-scale productions each weekend following the closing of a main stage show. Playwright Mary Emily O’Bradovich will host a post-performance talk-back on Saturday, Oct. 26, offering viewers an opportunity to ask questions and gain insight into the production’s artistic process. Curtains rise at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are $5.
