Event: Spend the Summer with the Independent Shakespeare Company in Griffith Park

June 4th, 2014 Comments off

We have been enjoying the free Shakespeare in Griffith Park by The Independent Shakespeare Company  for several years now. We have seen The Winter’s Tale, The Merry Wives of Windsor, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Much Ado About Nothing. The Independent Shakespeare Company always puts on an excellent and entertaining show, especially on lovely Summer nights under the star (and often with the coyotes calling from the surrounding hills.)

2014 Productions

Taming shrew

Griffith Park Free Shakespeare Festival returns on Thursday, June 26 with:

  • New productions of Twelfth Night and The Taming of the Shrew
  • Players in the Park/Teatristas en el parque family workshops
  • The Salon Series, discussions at the intersection of Shakespeare and contemporary culture
  • Festival Arts Partners, pre-show performances by a cross section of Los Angeles performing artists
  • An evening of Shakespeare and music produced in association with Symphony In The Glen.

Why not join us in seeing these shows this Summer? No tickets (or money) required (although tips are gratefully accepted to fund the company). Bring your chairs and your dinner. Come early and enjoy the sunset and a great show. I know we’ll be there.

Palm Springs declared hot in the hip sense (again) from LA Observed

Palm springs design district

When I visited Palm Springs in April, just ahead of the Coachella festival hordes, even I could detect the desert city has taken on a fresher vibe than the previous mix of sun-baked retirees, gay and lesbian desert rats and tourists from the snow belt. I hadn’t seen the expanded design district before at the north end of town, or observed firsthand the arrival of hipper places to stay like the Ace Hotel. Now the New York Times’ Fashion and Style section deems the shift to more hipness an actual trend, and pegs the story to Leo DiCaprio recently buying the old Dinah Shore estate.
