When an old
adversary threatens Rome, the city calls once more on her hero and defender:
Coriolanus. But he has enemies at home too. Famine threatens the city, the citizens’
hunger swells to an appetite for change, and on returning from the field
Coriolanus must confront the march of realpolitik and the voice of an angry
people. Josie Rourke directs Shakespeare’s searing tragedy of political
manipulation and revenge, with Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers, Midnight in
Paris, Thor) in the title role.

A sci-fi comic book comes to life as a vintage radio play the Austinist describes as "totally nuts and a ton of fun!" Three actors, retro Foley sound effects and a live keyboard score send you careening through an otherworldly adventure. With projected comics soaring above the stage, a full day of Nemesis satisfies in two giddy parts.
