Lecture, Cymbeline: A Conversation with Anita Diamant and Fred Sullivan, Jr. Members $15 lecture only or $55 lecture + reserved seat for performance; and Visitors $20 lecture only or $65 lecture + reserved seat for performance. Reservations requested. Online registration for this event closes at 12:00pm on July 25, 2019. For those attending the performance of Cymbeline in addition to the lecture, please consult the following on Seating and Special Accommodations: The Commonwealth Shakespeare Company's Our Friends Section consists of low lawn chairs pre-set in front of the stage on the Boston Common. Friends Section chairs are pre-assigned; you will be seated at the performance by a member of our team. If you require a specific seat location based on an accessibility need (low vision, access to an aisle for a mobility aid, etc), please contact us at info@commshakes.org or 617-426-0863. We cannot guarantee our ability to make changes to the seating chart the night of the event. We have a limited number of tall chairs (the height of a typical camping chair) for patrons who may not be comfortable in our low beach chairs. To request tall chairs, please contact us at the email or phone number provided above.
