BritWeek and The Wallis are proud to announce A Shakespeare Jubilee!
BritWeek, the largest and most visible celebration of the creativity and innovation between the UK and the US, celebrates its twelfth year with three significant events in Los Angeles. BritWeek has become a global forum that highlights British excellence and influence in theater, films, television, music, fine art, and sport. This year’s opening event is A Shakespeare Jubilee!, BritWeek’s first co-presentation with The Wallis. Produced and directed by Louis Fantasia, and featuring a star-studded cast of 26 actors and Impro Theatre, A Shakespeare Jubilee! takes place Saturday, April 28, 2018 at 7:30pm in the Bram Goldsmith Theater at The Wallis.
“Shakespeare is every actor’s first love,” says Shakespeare scholar Louis Fantasia, “And this jubilee on April 28th will show why, as we honor the Bard’s understanding of human nature and celebrate the jubilee organized by David Garrick in 1768, that honored Stratford’s famous citizen. And what better way to do this than introducing Britain’s greatest playwright to Beverly Hills’ most beautiful theater.”“As a part of our on-going commitment to partner with local artists and Los Angeles based cultural organizations we are so pleased to welcome BritWeek to The Wallis family this season,” said Paul Crewes, The Wallis’ Artistic Director and Rachel Fine, Managing Director.
The official sponsors of The Wallis’ 2017/18 season include: Delta Air Lines (Official Airline Sponsor), Montage Beverly Hills (Preferred Hotel) Mercedes-Benz of Beverly Hills (Official Automotive Sponsor) and Meridith Baer Home (Official Décor Sponsor).
