Closing Out 2016

“They are the books, the arts, the academes, That show, contain, and nourish all the world.” –Love’s Labor’s Lost

As 2016 comes to a close, I wanted to thank you all for joining me here at Shakespeare in LA. I launched the website 5 ½ years ago because I love Shakespeare but there was no place online to find out about productions and other Shakespeare-related topics without having to go to many different websites. Shakespeare in LA was my way of bringing it all together.

Since then, the number of theatre companies producing classical works has increased tenfold and Southern California audiences now have many more options to see one of our greatest playwright’s works come to life. In this 450th year of celebrating Shakespeare’s birth, that is a wonderful thing. It has been my pleasure to watch the community grow and to help facilitate that growth by writing about it. I hope you have found my contributions helpful.

There is nothing certain except change, however, and Shakespeare in LA will be going on hiatus for an indefinite (possibly permanent) period of time. I will continue to update the Calendar and post news on Shakespeare in LA’s Facebook and Twitter pages, and you’ll still find me writing for my other online platforms. You’ll also still see me at the theatre.

May you have much success and happiness in 2017. When in doubt, go see a show!

    Thank you, Sonia. The calendar will still be updated so you can find what’s playing in Southern California. I’m glad it’s been helpful!
