Cymbeline Ends its run at the Syracuse Stage | News Live at 6
SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Cymbeline will have its closing weekend at Syracuse Stage starting this Friday. The production is full of students both on stage and behind the scenes, and it runs through the Syracuse University Drama Department.
The production’s stage manager, Rebecca Malamud, said while this is a Shakespearean show, the audience should not be hesitant to see it.
“I’d just say that it’s something that I think people that are not super into theater would enjoy watching,” Malamud said. “I think that it would be important for potential audience members to not feel deterred by the fact that it’s Shakespeare, because we’ve made it extremely accessible and our interpretation of it is very modernized.”
While the production is a Shakespeare authored play, the language has been modernized. The production worked closely with the “Play On Project,” which employs playwrights to work on these modern translations.
Even though the play is open to the community to watch, it is a learning experience for those involved in the show. Malamud, the stage manager, said she learned more in the rehearsal room than in the classroom.
“I would say that most of the things I’ve learned about what it means to be a stage manager for me and what it means for how I interact with my company comes from what I’ve learned on the job,” Malamud said.
