Come mid-July, audiences will be rollicking in their seats at Wente Vineyards as Livermore Shakespeare Festival produces the irreverent The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) [Revised] by Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield.
The Complete Works is a mash-up of all 37 plays in the canon, performed by 3 actors in 97 minutes. “It is truly insane. If you like Shakespeare it is funny. If you hate Shakespeare, it is really funny.” Says Producing Artistic Director, Lisa A. Tromovitch. “We have cast three of the top Shakespearean actors in the Bay Area – all have worked extensively with the major Shakespeare festivals in the area.”
The play features Sydney Schwindt, Jed Parsario and Robyn Grahn. Schwindt appears frequently with San Francisco Shakespeare Festival and is one of the most sought after Fight Directors in the area. In addition to starring in The Complete Works this season, she directs all of the fights in LSF’s, Othello. Parsario recently completed Sweat at American Conservatory Theater and his credits include California Shakespeare Theater, Marin Shakespeare Company and Altarena Playhouse. He is a graduate of Shakespeare and Co. in Lenox, MA. Grahn has appeared with Livermore Shakespeare Festival previously as “Elinor” in the 2016 production of Sense and Sensibility. Grahn can often be seen working with San Francisco Shakespeare Festival, Ross Valley Players, and Shotz SF.
Livermore Shakespeare Festival is presenting Shakespeare’s The Tragedie of Othello and the irreverent madcap comedy The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) [Revised] by Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield on the grounds of Wente Vineyards Estate Winery & Tasting room at 5565 Tesla Road in Livermore July 3 – August 4, 2019.
