The Heart of Robin Hood on Broadway Background

This show, which manages to be considered a drama, comedy, and romance all at once, was first staged at the Royal Shakespeare Company in England in 2011. It was also seen at American Repertory Theater in 2013. Prior to its Broadway run, the show was enjoying a successful stint in Canada, first at Winnipeg’s John Hirsch mainstage, and then at Toronto’s Royal Alexandra Theatre. It was written by David Farr and directed by Gísli Örn Gardarsson.

The show has scenic design by Börkur Jónsson, sound design by Jonathan Deans and Garth Helm, costume design by Emma Ryott, lighting design by Björn Helgason, and associate direction as well as choreography by Selma Björnsdóttir. Furthermore, Walter Bobbie (director of Venus in Fur) is a creative consultant for the Broadway production.
