      CINDERELLA December 8-23, 2012 Press Opening: December 8 San Francisco's African-American Shakespeare Company opens the 2012-13 season with an enchanting new production of CINDERELLA. This timeless tale, brought to whimsical, magical life just in time for the holidays, is an uplifting re-telling of the classic fairytale, featuring all of the pageantry, hilarity, and charm of the original, but with a soulful twist. This heartwarming story finds Cinderella, a young, beautiful dreamer, toiling away as a lowly scullery maid for her evil stepmother and stepsisters. With the help of a fabulous Fairy Godmother who makes the magic happen, Cinderella finds her Prince Charming and learns that anything is possible, even miracles. CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF By Tennessee Williams January 26 - Feb. 17, 2013 Press Opening: January 26, 2013 A scintillating new interpretation of Tennessee Williams's Pulitzer Prize-winning play CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF, which investigates the lengths people will go to protect themselves and their loved one. Maggie Pollitt is a young Southern wife doing everything she can to save her marriage to Brick, a one-time football star who continues to live, miserably, off his former glory. A series of explosive secrets, lies, and betrayals are revealed as Maggie and Brick join the rest of the Pollitts to celebrate family patriarch Big Daddy's birthday. One of Williams's best-known works, and one of his favorite plays, CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF originally opened on Broadway in 1955 under the direction of Elia Kazan; the play was made into a classic film starring Elizabeth Taylor and Paul Newman, and was recently revived on Broadway featuring an all-black cast. MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR By William Shakespeare May 4-26, 2013 Press Opening: May 4 Closing African-American Shakespeare Company's 18th season is celebrating one of Shakespeare's most beloved characters and infamous skirt-chasers, THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR reunites audiences with the ever-merry, ever-scheming character Sir John Falstaff from Shakespeare's history plays King Henry IV, Part 1 and King Henry IV, Part 2, this time at the center of a comedy of his own. THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR chronicles the exploits of Falstaff who, down on luck and money, tries to swindle two seemingly-simple housewives. But the joke is on him when the Mistresses Ford and Page catch on to Falstaff's seduction scheme and teach him a lesson with some mischief of their own. African-American Shakespeare Company's production, re-set in the 1960's in the shared back yards of a city neighborhood, adopts the style of the popular urban black theater movement known as the "Chitlin Circuit."
