Hudson Warehouse: She Stoops to Conquer
Hudson Warehouse, known as “The Other Free Shakespeare in the Park,” inaugurated its twelfth season with special guest artist, film and stage star, Steve Guttenberg, in our June production of Henry 4.1.
The Warehouse continues their season in July with SHE STOOPS TO CONQUER, by Oliver Goldsmith, directed by Ian Harkins. Ian Harkins, who has performed in three Warehouse productions, including the comedy, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged), makes his directorial debut. Assistant Director is Nicholas Martin-Smith, Producer is Susane Lee.
Synopsis: When Kate realizes her suitor, the dashing Marlow, is a nervous wreck around upper class women, but very easy and free with working class women, she realizes she needs to “stoop to conquer” by posing as a maid to win him over. She Stoops to Conquer, first performed in 1773, is perhaps the most famous English “Comedy of Manners.” Its ability to entertain audiences today speaks of its timeliness and comedic masterfulness.
