Shakespeare meets JFK

The timeless  tragedy of Dallas has often inspired thoughts of Shakespeare, most notably “MacBird!” a satire by Barbara Garson which premiered in 1967. This theatrical tradition continues in southern California with a new production, “Tragedy of JFK.”

“Conceived, adapted and directed by Daniel Henning, this world premiere presented by the Blank Theatre Co. tells of events before, during and after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. It does so using the text of Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar,” changing names and places and weaving in contemporary historical utterances to take the story into 1960s Washington, D.C., and Dallas.”
