ACT is bringing magic back to Old Hollywood with Shakespeare in Hollywood by the modern master of farce, Ken Ludwig. Originally commissioned by The Royal Shakespeare Company, Shakespeare in Hollywood premiered at the Arena Stage in Washington, DC.
Thanks to the marvels of fairy magic, Shakespeare’s mischievous duo Oberon and Puck are unwittingly transported to the set of Max Reinhardt’s Hollywood blockbuster production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
The pair is left to wander the streets of Hollywood, fall in love with its glitz and glam and wreak havoc at every turn. No star or starlet is safe from their hijinks and no movie set has ever been hit with so much fairy dust.
From divas and ingénues to flowers that pack a punch, Shakespeare in Hollywood promises to have you laughing from “Action!”
