Shakespeare Theatre Teams with Local Businesses for 'Devil's Disciple' Promotion

July 14, 2014 at 2:44 PM

MADISON, NJ - The Shakespeare Theatre will celebrate the 350th anniversary of New Jersey’s charter and the opening of George Bernard Shaw’s The Devil’s Disciple through a unique local partnership with the Museum of Early Trades & Crafts and the Poor Herbie’s restaurant in Madison. 
Shaw’s only full-length play about America, The Devil's Disciple is set in 1777 amid the tumult of the American Revolution and honors the spirit of the everyday people who fought for the nation’s independence. Performances continue through July 27 at the F.M. Kirby Shakespeare Theatre, 36 Madison Ave. (at Lancaster Road) in Madison.
"Theatre is such a collaborative art form, and we’re delighted for the opportunity to collaborate with our local community throughout this production, especially as we remember the proud history of this country and this state that ties us all together,” said Rick Engler, director of marketing at The Shakespeare Theatre.
The Devil’s Disciple story begins as nearby insurgencies send shockwaves through the small town of Westerbridge, N.H. 

A special “pop-up” exhibit in conjunction with the Museum of Early Trades & Crafts’ ongoing exhibit The American Revolution: Where the Battlefront Meets the Homefront will be on display in the Theatre’s lobby throughout The Devil’s Disciple’s run. The exhibit will feature Revolutionary War artifacts from the Museum’s exhibit. 
"The Museum of Early Trades & Crafts is happy to partner with The Shakespeare Theatre to create our own 'Crossroads of the Revolution' this summer. Visitors can enjoy quality theatre and visual arts while they learn local history," said Meg Wastie, the Museum’s Curator of Education. Patrons can enhance their theatre-going experience by visiting the full exhibit at the museum, located at 9 Main St. in Madison. The Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4p.m. For more information, visit
