GRIFFITH PARK FREE SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL
"freewheeling irreverence & classical precision" - The Los Angeles Times
A summer season of free performances like no other! A beloved Los Angeles tradition, the Festival is freewheeling, inclusive and a bit anarchic. It's an entire summer of mainstage performances, pre-show family events including workshops, a slate of extraordinary opening acts and diverting community events. Bring a blanket and a picnic to enjoy great theater in a great city. All free, all summer long.

TWELFTH NIGHT
A cloud hangs over the country of Illyria as Countess Olivia mourns and Duke Orsino pines. But when Viola (a young woman with a big secret) washes onshore, it soon becomes clear that you can’t keep the human spirit down for long. Music, dance, and lovable misfits abound in one of the most beloved romantic comedies of all time, all set against the backdrop of the jazz era.

Begins June 29, plays through September 1
In repertory with Pericles
Directed by David Melville
The cast of Twelfth Night features Patrick Batiste, Melissa Chalsma, Brent Charles, William Elsman, Hao Feng, Lorenzo Gonzalez, Carene Rose Mekertichyan, David Melville, Kelvin Morales, Xavi Moreno, Bukola Ogunmola, Darian Ramirez, Gyasi Silas and Sabra Williams.

"ISC’s updated Jazz-era spin on the timeline keeps the play fresh, while their smart use of site gags and creative ad-libs makes some of the now-obscure Elizabethan innuendos accessible... For some, three hours may be a long time to sit and digest Shakespeare, but this fairly modern, well-interpreted version of a feel-good play is worth a gander. - RECOMMENDED"
