The Storm Theatre Company will kick off 2013 with LE CID, a play by Pierre Corneille, translated into English verse by Richard Wilbur from January 4th through February 9th. LE CID is a co-production with The Blackfriars Repertory Theatre.
Peter Dobbins, Artistic Director of the Storm Theatre Company will helm the production which will feature Spencer Aste, Brian J. Coffey, Dinh Q. Doan, Meaghan Bloom Fluitt, Cheri Paige Fogleman, Benjamin Jones, Jeff Kline, Jessica Levesque, John Puello, George Taylor and Jessica Zinder. Stephen Logan Day serves as Assistant Director.

In LE CID, the 17th century classic, Don Rodrique transforms himself from young lover to great warrior, through his steadfast devotion to honor above all else. His actions both repel and attract his beloved Chimene who responds in-kind with a vow to destroy what she loves most. What ensues is one of history's strangest and most compelling love stories as well as one of the greatest dramatic works about the difficulty in becoming who you truly are.
