News   Shakespeare, Shaffer, a Hint of Shaw, Plus Felder's Bernstein & Gershwin to Play Old Globe in Summer 2011 The Old Globe's 2011 summer season will include Adrian Noble-directed productions of Shakespeare's The Tempest and Peter Shaffer's Amadeus, both in the Summer Shakespeare Festival, of which Noble is artistic director.

Much Ado About Nothing, directed by Ron Daniels, is part of the Shakespeare Festival, to play a repertory schedule May 29-Sept. 25, 2011, in the outdoor Lowell Davies Festival Theatre.

The summer season at the San Diego resident theatre will also boast Hershey Felder in Maestro: The Art of Leonard Bernstein (July 15-Aug. 28, 2011) in the Old Globe Theatre. Preceding Bernstein is a ten-day limited engagement of pianist-actor-playwright Hershey Felder in George Gershwin Alone (July 1-10, 2011).

The West Coast premiere of John Morogiello's romantic comedy, Engaging Shaw, in the Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre will complete the season, running July 29-Sept. 4, 2011.

Engaging Shaw is billed by Old Globe executive producer Lou Spisto as "a perceptive account of the real life romance between playwright George Bernard Shaw and socialite Charlotte Payne-Townshend that is very literate and entertaining."
