Shakespeare in Detroit Reimagines The Bard’s Antony & Cleopatra at Recycle Here March 15, 2014 #Detroit @detroitsamwhite
For Immediate Release February 27, 2014
Shakespeare in Detroit Reimagines The Bard’s Antony and Cleopatra
Pop-up theater company presents its sophomore production in New Center’s Recycle Here
DETROIT — After a successful debut presentation at Grand Circus Park last summer, Shakespeare in Detroit (SiD) will present its second production, Antony and Cleopatra, at Recycle Here in New Center.
The uniqueness of the facility inspired the concept for SiD’s site-specific Antony and Cleopatra.
Recycle Here provides drop-off recycling services in the city of Detroit. It is also an artist’s village with murals painted on the walls throughout the facility and an art park just around the corner.
“I saw a performance at the recycling center and I was really inspired by the aesthetic and Matt Naimi – a great advocate for art here in the city,” says SiD’s Artistic Director and Founder, Sam White. “It’s an epic-sized space with a really interesting visual quality that’s perfect for reimagining Rome and Egypt.”
SiD’s venue for their upcoming production also inspired unique costumes with many of them, along with several set pieces and props, made from recycled materials.
The costumes were created by local costume designer Cal Schwartz.
Antony and Cleopatra is sponsored by The Whitney and Midtown Detroit, Inc. who are providing heating components for the industrial space and Sit On It Detroit who are donating a portion of the seating for the theater’s patrons.
“Our sophomore production is truly a grassroots project with elements of the show provided by local organizations, our unique venue and many of our friends, family and community members helping make this show possible,” says White.
Antony and Cleopatra is directed by Detroit-resident Kyle Grant.
Showtimes for Antony and Cleopatra are Saturday, March 15 at 7 p.m.; Sunday, March 16 at 3 p.m.; Friday, March 21 at 7 p.m.; Saturday, March 22 at 7 p.m. at 1331 Holden St. in Detroit. Attendees are asked to pay a strongly suggested minimum donation of $10 for entry. Find us on Facebook and signup for updates at ShakespeareinDetroit.com.

Note: Parking is located on both Lincoln and Holden. There will be heating for the show, however, audience members are advised to dress warmly and comfortably to accommodate the warehouse environment.
Shakespeare in Detroit made its debut at Grand Circus Park in August 2013 during a one-night-only performance of Othello. The history-making performance included a cast of all local actors with attendance reaching approximately 500 Detroiters. The company was founded by Detroit native Samantha White.
