William Shakespeare’s THE GODFATHER

featuring TONY NAPPO as Vito Corleone

In response to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic, Driftwood Theatre has cancelled all planned public events for the foreseeable future. Please check back again for updates. Play in a Pub Will Return!

One of cinemas great classics meets a classic of the stage. You might recall William Shakespeare’s previous attempts to capture the passion and vibrancy of Italian tradition (Romeo & Juliet, Coriolanus, All’s Well That Ends Well, Much Ado About Nothing, The Taming of the Shrew), but with THE GODFATHER, Shakespeare unleashes his most powerful Italian tragedy to date.

Carrying on Driftwood’s fine tradition of informal readings of plays over a pint, William Shakespeare’s The Godfather is a theatrical mash-up of Italian proportions as audience members join Driftwood Theatre’s professional performers in reading, singing, and celebrating a cinematic masterpiece.

At Play in a Pub audience participation is the name of the game. Audience members take the stage in a variety of walk-on roles through the Memorable Character Live Auction. And you can bet there’ll be some participatory wedding singing along the way.
