Shakespeare Santa Cruz wraps up successful season

Shakespeare Santa Cruz's 27th season was marked by five successful productions, several of which received national and regional critical acclaim. The Wall Street Journal published a half-page review with photos of three of this season's productions, raving about them all. The San Jose Mercury News, Santa Cruz Sentinel, SF Weekly, Good Times and Metro Santa Cruz also published very positive reviews. In addition to staging Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and All's Well That Ends Well, SSC offered Itamar Moses's widely celebrated Bach at Leipzig, Lanford Wilson's Burn This, and the world premier of Beatrice Basso's English translation of Carlo Goldoni's 18th century comedy, The Antiquarian's Family. SSC's 2008 holiday show will be The Wind in the Willows, directed by Randall Stuart, running November 21-December 14. The production is a new version by Kate Hawley and Paul Whitworth based on the classic book by Kenneth Grahame.
