Phyllida Lloyd’s gripping films of the groundbreaking “Donmar Warehouse Shakespeare Trilogy,” in which women play all the parts originally written for men, could not be more timely. Lloyd’s metatheatrical approach made the actors inmates in a women’s prison assuming the characters in Shakespeare’s plays and the consequences of social and criminal justice inequities are especially relevant.

“Fall is in full swing as we come upon a long weekend for Columbus Day and Indigenous Peoples Day, which means there’s more time to take advantage of all NYC has to offer right now.
