Rue Reviews

2006 Production
“Pillaging Shakespearean plays is not a new practice, but few playwrights
who do so are as clever as August Schulenburg, whose new play Rue has
been given a playful and energetic staging by Kelly O’Donnell at Theater
for the New City in the East Village. Rue is not another retelling of one of
Shakespeare’s plays in contemporary dress. Far more innovative, it is
neo-Shakespeare with a poetic, invented language just shy of iambic
pentameter and a plot that dexterously weaves together elements of
The Tempest, Twelfth Night, As You Like It and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”
-Victoria Linchon, Theatre2k
