Rep's Shakespeare in Hollywood Opens April 1

By Gibbs22manila @gibbscadiz
For anyone who wants some painless lessons in Shakespeare and some good laughs, catch “Shakespeare in Hollywood,” the latest offering of Repertory Philippines.
Winner of the Helen Hayes Award for Best New Play (2004), “Shakespeare in Hollywood” is Ken Ludwig's comedy tale set in 1930’s Hollywood about the making of the Warner Brothers 1935 movie version of Shakespeare's “A Midsummer Night's Dream”--but served with a twist!
The “real” Oberon and Puck from Shakespeare’s day have taken a wrong turn in their time travel and have landed right on the sound stage of a Burbank lot, just before shooting begins. As luck would have it, Victor Jory, who was to play Oberon, walks off the picture and Mickey Rooney, who is to play Puck, has broken his leg. Max Reinhardt is ecstatic to have two wonderful, real Shakespearean actors.
What follows is a farce that involves the likes of Will Hayes, Joe E. Brown, Jimmy Cagney, Dick Powell, Louella Parsons, Olivia De Havilland, the bimbo Lydia and the Warner brothers.
