Apr 5 08:00 pm Titus Andronicus Orlando Shakespeare Theater
$12 student tickets half hour before show/ $10 off all advanced tickets - Shocking, savage, and outrageously entertaining – Titus Andronicus is a cataclysmic cycle of revenge between the families of Titus, the great Roman general, and Tamora, the sadistic Queen of the Goths. Each of their barbarous and diabolical acts begets more brutal acts of retaliation. Theatrically vivid and surprisingly moving, Titus Andronicus is what a summer blockbuster would be if it were written by the world's great genius of language and theater.
