The Old Globe’s 2013-2014 Season To Feature Shakespeare Indoors

Barry EdelsteinArtistic Director Barry Edelstein will make his Old Globe directorial debut with Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale as part of the Globe’s 2013 – 2014 season. This marks the first indoor Shakespeare production at the Globe in over a decade with Edelstein, who was named “one of the country’s leading Shakespeareans” by NPR, at the helm. The Winter’s Tale will also feature original music by Michael Torke. Shakespeare’s sublime late masterpiece is a profound exploration of the simple miracles in life and the forces that shape them: love, friendship and forgiveness. The Winter’s Tale will run February 8 – March 16, 2014.

Edelstein’s inaugural season kicks off with the previously announced The Last Goodbye, a new musical that marries Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet and the electrifying songs of the legendary singer songwriter Jeff Buckley. The rock musical will be directed by two-time Tony Award nominee Alex Timbers (Peter and the Starcatcher, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson) with choreography by Sonya Tayeh (“So You Think You Can Dance”).  More

As previously announced: On June 29, 2012, Little Candle Productions will make its grand debut with a one-night only performance of The Winter’s Tale at Glendale’s historic Alex Theatre. The brainchild of three theatre school friends, Little Candle seeks to draw attention to the fleeting reality and ephemeral nature of theatre. Instead of reproducing a show again and again, the company will unite actors, crew and audience in a once-in-a-lifetime, never-to-be-repeated experience.

The Winter’s Tale is a story about a jealous suspicion that tears family and friends apart and can only be resolved after the passage of many miles and many years. The cast features Cornelius Smith, Jr. (Camillo), Jim Van Over (Leontes), Betsy Roth (Hermione), Jennifer Bronstein (Paulina), Justin Michael Terry, and Ethan Rains along with Meredith Alloway, Fernando Belo, Thomas Bigley, Adam Elliott, Billy Gill, Emily Habeck, Sawyer Jordan, Sky King, Jake Kropac, Tyler Olshansky, Christina MacKinnon, Jamie Sadd, and Blake Walker.

Tickets are $20 (balcony) and $35 (mezzanine and orchestra) and can be purchased in person at the Alex Theatre Box Office, The Americana at Brand Ticket Outlet, or Glendale Community College; by phone at 818-243-ALEX (2359); or online Here.
