A First Look on Rep Phil's "Shakespeare in Hollywood"

This just got in.  An exclusive first look  Repertory Philippine's next offering "Shakespear in Hollywood".

About the Show: 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 is 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. It also involves that famous flower that makes the first person you see upon awaking fall immediately in love with you.

L-R: Raymond Concepcion (Harry Warner), Robie Zialcita (Max Reinhardt), Cris Villonco (Lydia Lansing), Red Concepcion (Puck), Reuben Uy (Dick Powell), Caisa Borromeo (Olivia Darnell) and Hans Eckstein (Oberon)

The show will be directed by Jaime del Mundo with a stellar cast of talented Rep actors
which includes Miguel Faustmann, Joy Virata, Caisa Borromeo, Cris Villonco, Hans Eckstein, Red Concepcion and a lot more.

Will be posting more about the show on the coming days. So watch out for it. Shakespeare in Hollywood is set to premiere on April 1 and will end on the 17th in Greenbelt 1 Onstage Theater.  For tickets, inquiries and other information, call Repertory Philippines at 571-6926 and 571-4941 or email info@repertory.ph.
