Obie winner Ron Cephas Jones, who was last seen at the Public Theater as the malevolent Aaron in Titus Andronicus, returns to take on another despicable villain: the deformed titular monarch in Richard III. Coming off its run as a part of the Public Theater’s recently revived Mobile Shakespeare Unit, which tours correctional facilities, homeless shelters, and senior centers, the production opens tonight at the Public for a three-week stint. Amanda Dehnert directs the gory tale of a ruthless tyrant who will stop at nothing to be king.
Mondays-Thursdays, Saturdays, 7 p.m.; Saturdays, 2 p.m.; Fridays, 5 & 9 p.m. Starts: Aug. 6. Continues through Aug. 26, 2012
