LOS ANGELES -- On Friday, Aug. 14 the Hudson Guild will launch its first annual "Summer Shakespeare on the Hudson" with a production of Twelfth Night. Shakespeare's comedy "embodies a carnivalesque spirit of abandon," said director Jack Stehlin. "Love at first sight, masquerades, drinking, duelling. This is perfect summer fare!"
Performances are Fri. & Sat. nights at 8 PM through Sept 19. The Hudson Guild is located at 6543 Santa Monica Blvd. Call (888) 566-TIXX.
