Shakespeare in a Garden

Sep 8, 2009

MSND poster squareThough the heat of September is upon us, we can still dream of midsummer at the Descanso Gardens with the help of the Crown City Theatre Company. For four performances, the company will bring Shakespeare’s classic comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream to the Under the Oaks Theater. Hopefully the smooth comedy will bring some refreshing summer breezes to our hot valley.

As always, you may bring your own picnic or purchase one onsite from Patina Catering prior to the show. If you’ve never seen it, come; if you’ve seen it a million times, come to watch Shakespeare outdoors as it was intended to be performed; and if you’ve seen it a million times and outdoors, come because it’s surely been too long since you’ve seen the Helena/Hermia fight. If we’re wrong, “Think but this and all is mended;/ That you have but slumbered here/ Whilst these visions did appear.”
