As we’ve said before, New York loves Shakespeare. And the best thing about the city’s love for The Bard is that theater companies here find ingenious ways to make his historic plays fresh and exciting. We were absolutely thrilled by Dzieci Theatre’s MAKBET, and although New Feet Productions’ Arden/Everywhere doesn’t take place in a shipping container, the set does have a similarly-industrial feel, thanks to its reinterpretation of Arden Forest (from Shakespeare’s As You Like It) as a refugee camp.
