Sunday in the Park with Willie Shakes

At the risk of decloaking myself as a true theatre nerd, I thought I’d let you know about the Shakespeare Festival happening this Sunday at The Huntington Gardens.

From the website:

Proving that all the world really is a stage, roving actors from the troupe Shakespeare at Play will stroll through the grounds throughout the day performing scenes from ìThe Taming of the Shrew,î ìMacbeth,î ìHamlet,î ìJulius Caesar,î ìThe Merry Wives of Windsor,î ìA Midsummer Nightís Dream,î and ìA Winterís Tale.î Mingling with the actors (and rubbing shoulders with the public), lords and ladies from the Elizabethan re-enactment group Guild of St. George will add historical context to the performances, bringing life to the roles played by the boisterous audience of Shakespeareís day and the noble patrons of the players.

If you’ve never been to the Huntington Library, it’s a beautiful way to spend the day, especially if you have kids. It’s part botannical garden, part library and part museum.

So there you go. I’ve planned your weekend…

Saturday = Hard ‘n Phirm at 10:30pm at The Improv on Melrose

Sunday = Shakespeare at The Huntington.

Enjoy.
