Her kingdom for a horse

You think Frank Underwood on House Of Cards knows how to plot and scheme? Shakespeare wrote the be-all-end-all of antiheroes. Yes, when it comes to characters you love to hate, it's tough to beat Richard III. His Machiavellian scheming is a subversive joy to behold, nearly as joyous as watching his inevitable and self-made demise. This performance by Performance Network Theater, in conjunction with Eastern Michigan University, features another, more modern twist: Richard will be played by a woman, PNT Associate Artistic Director Carla Milarch.

Opens Thursday, April 24, runs through Sunday, June 1. Thursday 7:30pm, Friday-Saturday 8pm, Saturday 3pm, Sunday 2pm. $27-46.
