For the first time under the 21-year leadership of Bonnie J. Monte, The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey will present William Shakespeare’s rarely produced work, Timon of Athens.  Performances of Timon of Athens begin on July 6th and continue through July 24th at the Theatre’s Main Stage – the intimate F.M. Kirby Shakespeare Theatre.  For tickets or for more information, call the box office at 973-408-5600 or visit www.ShakespeareNJ.org.    The F.M. Kirby Shakespeare Theatre is located at 36 Madison Avenue (at Lancaster Road), in Madison.  This inventive, 90-minute version of Shakespeare’s Timon of Athens is an extraordinary explosion of imaginative staging and resonant themes.  The adaptation, by Brian B. Crowe, mixes a sublime blend of Grand Guignol, Vaudeville, and Brechtian theatricality to tell the story of Timon, the play’s title character, and his psychological transition from childlike innocence to bitter despair.
