More info:

A chaste princess betrayed and lost, an evil stepmother and two brothers unaware of their princely status. Sounds pretty heavy for a romance?

Shakespeare had a way of making it all work out in the end with “Cymbeline.”

Full of plot devices reminiscent of “Othello,” “Romeo and Juliet,” “As You Like It” and “The Winter’s Tale,” “Cymbeline” illustrates Shakespeare’s power over audiences. And The New American Shakespeare Tavern will weild that power as it preview the play from Sept. 12-17 at 499 Peachtree St. NE, Atlanta.
