By William Shakespeare
One of the bloodiest plays in the canon, Titus Andronicus is full to the brim with revenge, murder, betrayal and crimes most atrocious. Titus Andronicus evokes startling, gruesome and tragic imagery as the mighty Roman general Titus faces off with his mortal enemy, Tamora, Queen of the Goths. Titus and Tamora, in a spiral of bloody revenge, trade murder for hideous murder, each more brutal than the last. Perfect for the Halloween season!

CHECK OUT WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:
"Violent 'Titus' is worth the ride."
"…director Jeremy Dubin has lots of other tricks and treats up his sleeve."
"...lots of playful steampunk costuming by Heidi Jo Schiemer ... also celebrated in the accompanying tuneful score..."
"It’s always a pleasure to see talented (Miranda) McGee ... and she embraces her bad, bad girl role. Maggie Lou Rader is first-rate as Titus’ much-abused daughter Lavinia and Paul Riopelle does nice work as Titus’ stalwart brother. Justin McCombs is a hoot as the dim and vain emperor seduced by Tamora ...Nice work, too from Travis McElroy as Titus’ heroic son Lucius."

"Titus Andronicus Earns 2 LCT Nominations... for lead actor (Nick Rose) and featured actor (Darnell Benjamin) as well as distinguishing it as a recommended production.
"Nick Rose’s portrayal of Titus as 'deliciously mad and steely', portraying a 'huge sea of emotions'. Darnell Benjamin played the unrepentant moor Aaron 'powerfully and remarkably multi-dimensionally'. Overall ...the show was a 'delicious Halloween treat…with just the right balance of wit, cheap thrills, and spectacl', 'blood and gore tempered with moments of honesty'
