“What You Will” by Ensemble Shakespeare Theater @ Descanso Gardens
Sep 9 @ 5:30 pm

Join us on September 8, 9, 10, or 11 for a performance of What You Will by the Ensemble Shakespeare Theater at the Amphitheater off the Main Lawn. 


When was the last time you went to a Shakespeare show and didn’t know what to expect? Or were genuinely surprised by the ending? Or came out seeing life from a new perspective? What You Will is coming to Descanso Gardens to bring you a totally new and surprising experience of live theater.

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, click here to reserve your tickets.

Join us for a special pop-up yoga class led by Barbara Wood on Saturday, September 10 from 8:30–10am in the Rose Garden. Rejuvenate your body and mind after a 25-minute garden walk and 60-minute yoga practice.

Yoga can slow down the natural decline of bone mass while simultaneously improving strength and balance. A daily yoga practice can improve your bone density as you learn proper alignment and what is safe to do.

Meets in the Rose Pavilion. $20 members, $25 non-members. Advance registration required, register here.
