The Independent Shakespeare Company does shows every summer at the Old Zoo. Here are some reasons to go:
1. Free, fabulous productions of Shakespeare!
2. One of the most beautiful, best kept secrets of an outdoor space: the Old Zoo in Griffith Park.
3. Bring a picnic and catch one of the special shows throughout the summer where there are fantastic Players in the Park or Invertigo Dance pre-shows for the whole family.
4. Explore and play before the show.
This August you can see Two Gentlemen of Verona. Bring bug spray and warm clothes, as it gets chilly when the sun goes down. Blankets and low chairs are permitted, tall chairs and dogs are not.
Note for parents: Shakespeare is great for kids! But please be advised, these are not Shakespeare performances edited or changed for children. Shakespeare wrote about the human experience, and his plays include examples of sexuality and violence, and deal with adult themes. Email ISCLA and they’ll be happy to answer any specific questions you may have about particular performances. And please, keep your children with you at all times.
