The Bridge Project’s second season concludes its engagement at BAM on Saturday, March 13th at the BAM Harvey Theater.  The Bridge Project will next embark on an international tour visiting Asia and Europe before opening in London at The Old Vic in June 2010.

Following a critically acclaimed inaugural year, theater and Academy Award-winning film director Sam Mendes again directs a transatlantic company of actors for the second season of The Bridge Project, a unique three-year series of co-productions by BAM, The Old Vic, and Neal Street devoted to producing large-scale, classical theater for international audiences.

Year two features the intriguing double-bill pairing of Shakespeare’s witty pastoral comedy As You Like It and his late masterpiece The Tempest with another stellar British/American cast that includes Christian Camargo as Orlando and Ariel in As You Like It and The Tempest; Stephen Dillane as Jaques and Prospero; Ron Cephas Jones as Charles the Wrestler and Caliban; Alvin Epstein as Adam and Gonzalo; Juliet Rylance as Rosalind and Miranda; and Thomas Sadoski as Touchstone and Stephano; and Michelle Beck as Celia and Ceres.  Claire Béjanin is the international tour producer for The Bridge Project.

Tickets are on sale now for the The Bridge Project at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.  Tickets are available online at http://www.bam.org, by phone at (718)636-4100 or in person at the BAM box office (30 Lafayette Avenue, Brooklyn NY).
