Richard 3.5 (2006) is a collaboration between the acclaimed physical comedian, Bob Berky and Sandglass Theater. Live from the 15th century, King Richard III is here to perform, for your enjoyment, 11 murders and 7 original songs that Shakespeare never meant to write. Surrounded by larger-than-life candles, whose wax is used to create the puppet victims before your eyes, Richard and his emcee accomplice dance and sing their way through this epic tragedy. To join the livestream at 7 pm on July 16, please visit our Special Events page Summer Streaming or our Facebook page or Youtube channel.
