IUPUI Theatre

Did William Shakespeare actually co-author a play called “The History of Cardenio?” It’s debatable (and scholars have debated it for a long time). Does “The History of Cardenio” being presented this week at IUPUI resemble at all the show presented by Shakespeare’s company the King’s Men? That’s debatable, too, since no copies exist of the actual play. Will “The History of Cardenio” hold interest beyond academia? We shall see. Will it work better on stage than this group’s previous production of “Young Hamlet”? I sincerely hope so. Am I excited that a new theater space is being launched in Indy? Absolutely. Details here
