Theatricum Botanicum’s Summer Season Launch 

On Saturday, June 11 is the Bard’s The Merry Wives of Windsor, reset in 1950s small-town America during the nascent period of second-wave feminism and featuring a rockin’ score of ‘50s tunes. Things might seem picture perfect in “Small Town U.S.A”… but when opportunistic schemer and womanizer John Falstaff blows into town with his gang and tries to woo two wealthy ladies at once, the town’s women gleefully plot his comeuppance. Theatricum artistic director Ellen Geer directs.

Beginning Sunday, June 12, Theatricum brings back its signature production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream directed by company favorite Melora Marshall. An annual season staple going back decades, Theatricum’s wooded stage morphs into the enchanted woods of Athens, where mortal lovers chase and are chased, players prepare, and fairies make magical mischief in Shakespeare’s most entertaining and beguiling comedy. Both shows will run through October 2nd. Call (310) 455-3723 or visit theatricum.com for tickets and more information.
