All's Well That Ends Well  
Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum All's Well That Ends Well
 
Theatricum continues its celebration of Shakespeare’s 450th birthday with the Bard’s bittersweet comedy. The beautiful but low-born Helena heals the king, winning the right to marry the man she loves – a count above her station. But no one is prepared for the severity and ruthlessness of Bertram’s rejection of Helena as his royally-decreed wife, nor for the lengths to which Helena will go in order to win his love. This summer, discover Theatricum Botanicum's “garden of theater,” a spectacular outdoor amphitheater nestled in the heart of Topanga Canyon.

Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum Much Ado About Nothing

Without Annette  
Whitefire Theatre Without Annette
 
When a play is set in an improv class, anything can happen. Welcome to the world of Without Annette, a risky, fast-paced comedy about the lives, loves and secrets of improv comedians. Co-writers Jeff Doucette (Desperate Housewives, Scandal) and Hope Juber (It's The Housewives!, A Very Brady Musical) have created a richly drawn cast of characters who play, laugh, have affairs, uncover hidden truths and finally unite to improvise their own hilarious finale. With a cast cherry-picked from the Groundlings, Second City, the Spolin Players and Shplotz! (among others), each show is different, a unique hybrid of scripted and improv performance of the highest caliber.

Andronicus  
Lyric Hyperion Theatre Andronicus
 
Deliciously twisted humor gives way to unexpected poignancy in this bold take on William Shakespeare’s original horror play The Lamentable Tragedy of Titus Andronicus. Reveling in the darkest corners of human nature, Andronicus is a streamlined adaptation of Shakespeare’s most violent play; the bard’s masterful dramatic structure and brutal tale of revenge have been carefully preserved.
