Set in the ‘Birthplace of Jazz’, and featuring the songs of the legendary Dr. John, Shakespeare’s magical tale unfolds from the crumbling New Orleans jazz clubs and out into the Louisiana Bayous – bringing to life Shakespeare’s text amidst the dark imagination of the American Deep South.

Underscored with New Orleans jazz, blues and vodoo played live by the cast, including the music of Louis Armstrong, Professor Longhair, and others.

“Rumbles with racial tensions, voodoo rituals and impromptu jazz sessions... Dark, mysterious and even a tad malicious... Moody. ”

Miriam Gillinson (Arts Desk, Time Out)

“The hoodoo-voodoo in this summer reimagining is almost there, but needs some more cooking to be magical. ”
