Presenting Shakespeare 1,100 Posters From Around The World

“Just as centuries of theatrical artists have reimagined his works through the lens of their own time and culture, so too have illustrators and designers.

Presenting Shakespeare is the first book ever to showcase theater posters for Shakespeare’s plays. The posters have been designed by an international roster of artists representing 56 countries, from Japan to Columbia, India, Russia, Israel, and New Zealand to England and the United States and beyond.”

“This stunning selection of the best in Shakespeare posters from the nineteenth century to the present was chosen from the collections of museums, theaters, and individuals.”

And I’m honored to say that the poster I designed and illustrated for Capitol Shakespeare’s production of Macbeth was sought out and featured in this publication’s broad and beautiful collection of international posters representing Shakespeare’s plays.

Capitol Shakespeare Presents: The Comedy Of Errors – Illustration & Design by Bree Reetz

The Comedy Of Errors by Bree ReetzDSC_2120

I’m excited to share with you the branding I created
for Capitol Shakespeare‘s summer play:
The Comedy Of Errors. They decided to set the scene
for this production in one of my favorite eras, the roaring
1920s. So it was especially fun to dive into that era,
bringing a modern look to some really snazzy Art Deco
inspiration. If you’re in Bismarck ND, make sure to get
yourself to one of their free performances: July 22-26 7pm.

The Comedy of Errors is the story of not one but two sets
of twins who are separated at birth. One set ends up in
Syracuse and the other in Ephesus. The twins from Syracuse
set out on a journey to find their mother and brothers. Once
they arrive in Ephesus however, they are constantly mistaken
for their twin brothers and all sorts of hijinks ensue!
The Comedy of Errors is full of humor, wit, and of course
a happy ending.
