Advance Notice. Shakespeare in the Park.

Summer nights in L.A. are simply made for sitting outdoors, and adding a little culture sure doesn't hurt either. That's why Shakespeare in the Park, the annual summer fest in which the Independent Shakespeare Co. puts on free outdoor performances, is such a grand idea. The plays have become so popular in recent summers that they're being moved to the larger venue of Griffith Park this year, sure to make an even more picturesque time.

Shakespeare in the Park will remain free when performances begin July 8 (with Othello), but the company does need funds to put on those plays pro bono. To help out, catch the one-night-only show of Two Gentlemen in Verona on Sunday, May 16. Not only will you be able to see the performance in the festival's new venue, but it's a great way to kick off the summer just right, and make sure the rest of the season is filled with just as many wonderful shows. Tickets are $25 per adult, for $50 for two adults and children.
