"I am thrilled to bring this ambitious season to our audiences," said African-American Shakespeare Company Artistic Director L. Peter Callender. "Our goal for 2012-13 is to present something new, funny, and vibrant, something our audiences may not have seen before, give it a new face and serve it up with a bit of spice and elegance. Staying true to our vision of re-imagining the classics with color, we offer this season as a thank you to our subscribers, Bay Area actors of color, Bay Area schools, and our community at large. We look forward to seeing everyone at the theater!"
