About Arclight Repertory Theatre (ART)

ART—a professional, nonprofit performing arts organization is partnering with the The Abhinaya Dance Company, Lincoln Glen Church and The San Jose Downtown Association to present the first annual “Shakespeare on the Square” festival. ART is dedicated to producing original, classical and contemporary plays in imaginative and innovative ways. ART offers educational outreach programs to underserved and at-risk youth in Santa Clara County and develops new voices for the theatre through its “Sparklight Play Development Series.” Arclight Rep will present Mark W. Jordan’s original adaptation of Henry IV entitled, Henry, Harry and Sir John on Sunday, May 18th at the Theatre on San Pedro Square at 7pm. Last summer, Arclight Repertory Theatre presented Shakespeare’s dark comedy, Measure for Measure. The San Jose Metro critic Marianne Messina described it as “an extremely lucid production” and added that “Pushing creatively on the text, Arclight’s production adds revelation between the spoken lines, which makes it full of surprises”.
