The Old Globe features ‘Robin Hood!’

The world premiere of Ken Ludwig’s “Robin Hood!” — directed by Jessica Stone — has been extended to run through Sept. 3 in the Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre at the Conrad Prebys Theatre Center in Balboa Park.

Inventive comic genius Ken Ludwig, whose “Baskerville” brought Sherlock Holmes to the Globe, is back with a brand-new Globe-commissioned world premiere comedy about another icon: Robin Hood. Packed with thrills, romance, laughs and great characters like Little John, Friar Tuck and Maid Marian, “Robin Hood!” tells the timeless story of a hero of the people who takes on the powers that be. So get ready to duck a quarterstaff or two — you won’t want to miss a moment of the swashbuckling fun.
