Globe Theatre At The Broad Stage: The Merry Wives Of Windsor

Posted: Updated:

Who: The world-renowned Shakespeare Globe Theatre players.

What: The Globe Theatre will be performing Shakespeare's The Merry Wives of Windsor. Directed by Christopher Luscombe, it was reviewed glowingly in the UK Times:

Making broad Shakespearean comedy funny for a 21st-century audience often feels a stretch. But in his hectically paced, sitcom-inspired production of Merry Wives, Christopher Luscombe succeeds triumphantly in doing not only that, but in making the play's multiple plot strands and every one of its characters, down to the most minor, ring out with joyous, bell-like clarity.

When: The Globe Theatre stops in at the Broad Stage from October 14-24 as part of an international tour, with showings at 2pm and 7:30pm.

Where: The Broad Stage, 1310 11th St., Santa Monica, CA 90401

How: Buy tickets online.

Why: The Globe Theatre players are part of the Globe Theatre Foundation, who is tasked with maintaining the reconstructed Globe Theatre in London and educating the public about Shakespeare's works, in addition to producing plays.
