Fit for a King: Spe­cially Priced Tick­ets to Nell Gwynn at Fol­ger The­atre

The Washington Post - - EDUCATION -

An or­ange seller from the streets of Drury Lane steps onto the stage and be­comes the dar­ling of the Restora­tion the­ater. Nell’s big­gest fan: Charles II. Smit­ten with Nell’s spirit, the king brings her to court as a fa­vorite mis­tress. Com­mis­sioned by Shake­speare’s Globe, this sparkling por­trait of a rare woman earned ac­co­lades in Lon­don. The play is “an ab­so­lute treat.” (The
