The New Victory presentation of Seattle Children’s Theatre’s Robin Hood marks the first theatrical adaptation about the medieval hero to return to the New York stage since 1944, when J.J. Shubert, Lee Shubert and R. H. Burnside produced an operetta of the same name at the Adelphi Theatre (a venue later known as the George Abbott Theatre, which was demolished in 1970).
Written by Greg Banks (Tir Na N’og, New Vic 2000) and directed by Allison Narver, this action-packed adventure features a Robin Hood with a tongue as sharp as his sword. Under the fly of arrows, and with some very clever quick changes, a versatile cast of four takes on more than a dozen roles to bring the legend of England’s famous outlaw to life. Originally commissioned and produced by Children’s Theatre Company (Minneapolis) and produced by special arrangement with Plays for Young Audiences, this presentation appeared on the Seattle Children’s Theatre stage in 2011 and returned by popular demand to close their 2014-15 season last May.
