Again and Again in Lincoln's Top Ten

Flatwater Shakespeare productions and actors were repeat honorees in 2012's lists of Top Individual Performances and Shows by Jeff Korbelik of the Lincoln Journal Star.

In the Top Individual Performances –

Richard Nielsen as Roy Cohn, Angels in America, Part Two: Perestroika.  "The drama was filled with amazing talent -- Matt and Summer Lukasiewicz, Nate Weiss, and Darin Hemmer as a last-minute replacement -- but this was Nielsen’s best work to date."

Andy Dillehay as Feste the Clown, Twelfth Night. "With hair colored as a rainbow, Dillehay was a standout among several fine performances in this Shakespeare comedy."

In the Top Shows –

Angels in America, Part Two: Perestroika,” Flatwater Shakespeare. "Director Bob Hall brought back the players from last year’s Part One to finish Tony Kushner’s Pulitzer Prize winner about the 1980s AIDS crisis."

Congratulations to Richard, Andy, Bob, and all the honorees -- including such Flatwater Shakespeare associates as Becky Key Boesen, Sasha Dobson, Mary Douglass, Scott Glen, and Jeff Tinnean!

December 2012

Dear Friends of Flatwater Shakespeare:

I invite you to invest in our 2013 season and the future of our theatre program, which has become an outstanding asset to the city of Lincoln's cultural and educational life.

In June and July we will once more tour Lincoln with Free Shakespeare in the Parks, performing another enchanting comedy, Much Ado About Nothing, directed by Becky Key Boesen.

In the fall, Flatwater Shakespeare will collaborate with Lincoln's Crooked Codpiece Theatre Company in presenting Samuel Beckett's absurdist comedy classic Waiting for Godot, directed by Bob Hall.

We must count on your help if we are to continue bringing Shakespeare to our community.
Your generosity with a tax deductible donation makes our work – and plays – possible.
