{SOLD OUT} “What You Will” by Ensemble Shakespeare Theater @ Descanso Gardens
Sep 17 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

Tickets are sold out for the Sept. 17 performance of What You Will

Join us on September 16, 17 or 18 for a performance of What You Will by the Ensemble Shakespeare Theater in the Amphitheater off the Main Lawn.

In turns funny, inspiring, heartbreaking, satirical, profound, silly, literal, figurative, and above all honest, What You Will is a passionate and moving dose of humanity through Shakespeare.

This Shakespearean “un-play” is the result of the Ensemble’s favorite professional actors, writers, and improvisors creating mini-plays through the lens of their individual and diverse backgrounds, responding to and recontextualizing Shakespeare’s stories and words. The company breaks down the mystique of Shakespeare’s language and creates pieces for all audiences to enjoy.

$20 for members, $25 for non-members. Advance tickets required.
