{SOLD OUT} “What You Will” by Ensemble Shakespeare Theater @ Descanso Gardens
Sep 8 @ 6:00 pm
“What You Will” is sold out. In the event of rain, “What You Will” will be moved to Van de Kamp Hall near the Visitor Center.

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.
