A RemarkaBULL Podversation:

Monday May 3rd at 7:30 PM EST

RED BULL THEATER (Jesse Berger, Founder and Artistic Director | Jim Bredeson, Managing Director) today announced that its offerings will continue on Monday May 3rd at 7:30 PM with a RemarkaBULL Podversation, Exploring CYMBELINE with Lily Rabe.

Known for her countless leading roles in the theatre and on-screen in film and television, Lily Rabe has paved her own path as a critically acclaimed, versatile actor. She will join host Nathan Winkelstein, Red Bull's Associate Artistic Director, for a conversation focused on an essential passage from Shakespeare's Cymbeline. She will read an excerpt and discuss the rewards and challenges of playing one of Shakespeare's more complex comedic leading ladies, Imogen-a role she played to great acclaim in the Park in 2015. They will take questions through LIVE chat, too! Advance reservations are recommended.

RemarkaBULL Podversations are informal, online conversations that investigate approaches to essential passages from the Shakespearean and Jacobean canon and beyond. You can watch past live conversations with André De Shields, Kate Burton, Lisa Harrow, Dion Johnstone, Elizabeth Marvel, Patrick Page, Matthew Rauch, Jay O. Sanders, Michael Urie, and more at www.redbulltheater.com/remarkabull-podversations.

Most recently, LILY RABE co-starred in HBO's hit limited series "The Undoing" opposite Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant. Now streaming on Amazon Prime Video is the ten episode drama series "Tell Me Your Secrets," which Rabe leads alongside Hamish Linklater and Amy Brenneman. From Bruna Papandrea's Made Up Stories, "Tell Me Your Secrets" follows Emma (Rabe), a young woman who is searching for the truth about her past; motives grow murky, blurring the lines between victim and perpetrator. Upcoming, Rabe will be seen as Ethel Wells in Barry Jenkins's The Underground Railroad, set for a May 14, 2021 release. Rabe is currently in production on George Clooney's The Tender Bar, in which she plays the female lead alongside Ben Affleck, as well as the next season of Ryan Murphy's hit anthology series "American Horror Story" on FX. To date, Rabe has starred in all seasons of the show but one, and was nominated for a Critics Choice Award for her portrayal of Sister Mary Eunice. For her performance in Julia Hart's Miss Stevens, opposite Timothée Chalamet, Rabe was awarded Best Actress at the 2016 SXSW Film Festival. Other recent credits include Annapurna's Vice directed by Adam McKay, alongside Amy Adams, Steve Carrell and Christian Bale; Netflix's Fracture opposite Sam Worthington; HBO's movie The Wizard of Lies directed by Barry Levinson and starring Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer; Open Road's heist thriller film Finding Steve McQueen; Alex Ross Perry's Golden Exits; Blumhouse's The Veil; Pawn Sacrifice with Tobey Maguire; A Midsummer Night's Dream with Finn Wittrock, Rachael Leigh Cook and Hamish Linklater; and All Good Things opposite Ryan Gosling and Kirsten Dunst. In Dan Sullivan's The Merchant of Venice (Broadway, The Public Theater), Rabe played the iconic role of Portia opposite Al Pacino; for her performance, she received Tony, Drama Desk and Drama League nominations. Rabe has also starred in and received rave reviews in recent Shakespeare in the Park productions of Much Ado About Nothing, As You Like It and Cymbeline. About Rabe's ability to interpret Shakespeare, Oskar Eustis, Artistic Director of the Public Theatre, said, "I'm sure Balanchine felt this way when he found certain dancers." Rabe made her Broadway debut in Robert Harling's Steel Magnolias, which garnered her a Drama Desk Award nomination. She also starred on Broadway in Seminar opposite Alan Rickman, The American Plan, and Heartbreak House (OCC nomination, Callaway Award). Additionally, in the Williamstown Theatre Festival production of Henrik Ibsen's landmark 1879 drama, A Doll's House, directed by Sam Gold, Rabe played Nora Helmer. At the Geffen Playhouse, Rabe played the titular role in Neil Labute's contemporary remake of Miss Julie. Off-Broadway, she also performed in Crimes of the Heart, Colder Than Here, Proof, and The Crazy Girl. Via Kill Claudio Productions, Rabe and her producing partner Bettina Barrow are developing "The Big D" for HBO, as well as a film adaptation of the Chuck Klosterman novel, Downtown Owl. Lily is a graduate of Northwestern University.

Red Bull Theater is committed to continuing connection during this historic time. Red Bull's online readings offer the unique opportunity to hear rarely-produced classic plays, and brand new plays in conversation with the classics, performed by the finest actors in New York. All of Red Bull Theater's current offerings are FREE, but advance reservations are recommended. Tax-deductible donations are encouraged to support Red Bull and invest in the vitality of classical theater for a contemporary audience.

Since the start of the pandemic, Red Bull Theater has pivoted to free online offerings including livestreamed Benefit Readings and RemarkaBULL Podversations. These online projects cannot replace the live theater experience. There is simply no replacement for live theater. But, through these efforts Red Bull Theater strives to keep its community together and serve its mission to revitalize the classics until we can all gather safely once again to share in the singular Red Bull experience.

Red Bull Theater wishes to express its gratitude to the Performers' Unions: ACTORS' EQUITY ASSOCIATION, AMERICAN GUILD OF MUSICAL ARTISTS, AMERICAN GUILD OF VARIETY ARTISTS, and SAG-AFTRA through Theatre Authority, Inc. for their cooperation in permitting the Artists to appear on these programs.

Red Bull Theater, hailed as "the city's gutsiest classical theater" by Time Out New York, brings rarely seen classic plays to dynamic new life for contemporary audiences, uniting a respect for tradition with a modern sensibility. Named for the rowdy Jacobean playhouse that illegally performed plays in England during the years of Puritan rule, Red Bull Theater is New York City's home for dynamic performances of great plays that stand the test of time. With the Jacobean plays of Shakespeare and his contemporaries as its cornerstone, the company also produces new works that are in conversation with the classics. A home for artists, scholars and students, Red Bull Theater delights and engages the intellect and imagination of audiences, and strives to make its work accessible, diverse, and welcoming to all. Red Bull Theater believes in the power of great classic stories and plays of heightened language to deepen our understanding of the human condition, in the special ability of live theater to create unique, collective experiences, and the timeless capacity of classical theater to illuminate the events of our times. Variety agreed, hailing Red Bull's work as: "Proof that classical theater can still be surprising after hundreds of years."

Since its debut in 2003 with a production of Shakespeare's Pericles starring Daniel Breaker, Red Bull Theater has served adventurous theatergoers with Off-Broadway productions, Revelation Readings, and the annual Short New Play Festival. The company also offers outreach programs including Shakespeare in Schools bringing professional actors and teaching artists into public school classrooms; Bull Sessions, free post-play discussions with top scholars; and Classical Acting Intensives led by veteran theater professionals. In partnership with The Drama League, Red Bull Theater offers The Classical Directing Fellowship, which immerses a director in the life of a company working in the classical canon, and is designed to bring diverse voices into the productions and institutions dedicated to this work.

Red Bull Theater strives to be a home for all artists and theatergoers. Red Bull values and is dedicated to practicing inclusiveness on our stage, in our audience, on our staff, and within our leadership. We are committed to making antiracism a core value of our theater. We know that simply making these statements is not enough. We are committed to ongoing actions to increase racial justice and equal opportunity at our theater-doing our part to help realize a more racially and socially just theater community, city, and country.

"The classics-shaking Red Bull Theater," as Time Out NY has called it, has presented 20 Off-Broadway productions and nearly 200 Revelation Readings of rarely seen classics, serving a community of more than 5,000 artists and providing quality artistic programming to an audience of over 65,000. The company's unique programming has received ongoing critical acclaim, and has been recognized with Lortel, Drama Desk, Drama League, Callaway, Off Broadway Alliance, and OBIE nominations and Awards.
