Want to make it full-on Shakespeare weekend? Here’s what you’ll need to do and we’ve got some discounts to help out:
On Saturday afternoon head over to SIFF for the award-winning film Caesar Must Die at the Cinema Uptown. Set in a maximum-security prison, it follows the lives of its inmates as they try to work together for the production of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar. Not only are they showcasing the film, but the producer of the film, Agnese Fontana, will be there for the showings on 11/17 at 6:30 PM and 11/18 at 3:30 PM. Use the discount code: CAESAR2012 when ordering to get $2 off your $10 ticket.
Next, on Sunday, November 18, catch one of the final two performances of Antony and Cleopatra either at 2:00 PM or at 7:30 PM and bid farewell to this stunning production that the Seattle Times called “a rare, full-scale rendition of a fascinating classic. You can purchase tickets online or call the box office at 206-733-8222.
And finally, to extend your weekend just a little bit, there’s one more Shakespeare offering on Monday, November 19 at 7:30 PM take in the National Theatre’s filmed live production of Timon of Athens at SIFF Cinema Uptown. Simon Russell Beale plays the title role in Shakespeare’s strange fable of consumption, debt, and ruin. It’s a rare and fine opportunity to see this seldom performed classic that the Evening Standard called “a lacerating parable for our troubled times.” Use the discount code: TIMON2012 to receive $2 off the $20 admission when ordering tickets for either the show on 11/19 or 11/26.
Enjoy the weekend!
