Thank You for Joining Us!
Loyola Marymount University's Theatre Arts Department is delighted to kick off the (virtual) 3rd Annual Shakespeare on the Bluff Festival with a live, online performance of All's Well That Ends Well. In Shakespeare's play of poor choices and toxic masculinity, humor, heartbreak and scheming abound. Enjoy the show!
Wishing All a Happy Juneteenth
Loyola Marymount University, the LMU College of Communication and Fine Arts (under the leadership of Dean, Bryant Keith Alexander), the Theatre Arts Department, and the cast of this Shakespeare on the Bluff production celebrate Freedom Day, commonly known as Juneteenth! We are committed to eradicating systemic racism in our communities. We thank you for watching our show on this historic day and encourage our patrons to continue to support and attend works by African-American theatre companies and theatres that work to empower Black communities and to collectively work towards racial unity and racial equality.
The Two Noble Kinsmen - Coming July 17
Shakespeare on the Bluff continues on July 17 with a virtual performance of The Two Noble Kinsmen, Shakespeare's last play. In it, Theseus, the king of Athens, at the request of three queens whose husbands have been killed and remain unburied at the order of the wicked King Creon of Thebes, invades that city and conquers it. Cousins Palamon and Arcite, the two noblest warriors in Thebes, are taken prisoner. Both fall in love with Theseus's sister-in-law Emelia and escape prison to pursue her, while their jailer's daughter has fallen madly in love with Palamon - literally. She goes crazy when he does not return her love. Shakespeare's final play concerns friendship and the pain of unrequited love, resolving these doomed relationships in an unexpected yet oddly satisfying way.
LMU Theatre Arts would like to particularly thank Loyola Marymount University President Timothy Law Snyder; Executive Vice President and Provost Thomas Poon; and Dean of the College of Communication and Fine Arts Bryant Keith Alexander, for their unwavering support of our artistic community, both in good times, and when we seek to create and perform in the most challenging of times.
