A great romance turns to horror as the Duchess of Malfi seeks true love in a world of forbidden passions.

Red Bull Theater's production is the first Off Broadway revival of this Jacobean masterpiece in over 50 years. The cast includes: Heidi Armbruster, Jason C. Brown, Clark Carmichael, Keith Hamilton Cobb, Matthew Greer, Carol Halstead, Eric Hoffmann, Patrick Page, Matthew Rauch, Christina Rouner, Gareth Saxe, and Haynes Thigpen.
