Theatricum Botanicum brings back its signature production, an audience favorite with a set design unrivaled by any other theater - because it's the real thing. The most magical outdoor setting in Los Angeles is once again transformed into an enchanted forest inhabited by lovers both fairy and human. Shakespeare conjures a world of wonder, magic and romance where comical misunderstandings and the pain of unrequited love are resolved, and all is reconciled through midsummer night revelries and the enduring power of nature. Mediterranean buffet 'Dream Dinners,' with a costumed cast of fairies in attendance, take place every Thursday in August at 6:30 pm in the theater's adjacent gardens, followed by an 8 pm performance. (separate admission, or combo packages available).
“I can't think of any more fitting venue for staging Shakespeare's paean to love's labors’ found than Topanga Canyon's rustic, outdoor Theatricum Botanicum," wrote the LA Weekly. Agrees Daily Variety, “Directed with scintillating wit, every scene sets the pulse racing while still preserving a romantic flavor.”
A Midsummer Night’s Dream opens on Sunday, June 3 through September 30. Tickets are $20-$33. The Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum is located at 1419 N. Topanga Canyon Blvd., Topanga, CA, 90290. Audience members are advised to dress casually (warmly for evenings) and bring cushions for bench seating. For reservations and information, call 310-455-3723 or go to www.theatricum.comPhoto:
