October 6, 2011

Tis PityThe American Shakespeare Center on Tour will recreate the magic of the Blackfriars Playhouse, the world's only Shakespeare indoor theatre, at 7 p.m. Friday, October 7, in Hartwick College's Slade Theatre, with ‘Tis Pity She's a Whore.

Based in Staunton, VA, the American Shakespeare Center on Tour boasts nearly two decades worth of global touring experience. The elite troupe stands as one of America's foremost providers of quality entertainment on both sides of the Atlantic.

Tickets for ‘Tis Pity She's a Whore at Hartwick College are $8 general admission and free with Hartwick student ID. For reservation information, call 607-431-4227.
