Titus Andronicus 2011/4/26


The Brundage Park Playhouse presents William Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus;
A classic story of revenge popularized by the 1999 movie starring Anthony Hopkins. It is
widely known as ‘The Bard’s’ bloodiest work. Complete with special effects and blood
galore this adaptation does not fall short of expectation, however the venue is as small as
the sound, costume, and set design budget combined. The Brundage Park Players make
up for the program’s shortcomings with breakout performances all around. Most
memorable are Titus’ daughter Lavinia and the twin Goth sons of Tamora. Actor Joseph
Guadara steals the show as Saturninus, bringing a vicious energy and lavish style to the
table. For only ten dollars this play is sure to please. Be warned: This performance uses
blank firing pistols and graphic effects, discretion is advised.
