Parking: The free parking at the Westwood public structure (paid for by the Geffen) is a real hassle when everyone leaves at once. We pay $5.50 for a lot a block away from the theater and are home in bed by the time the last person straggles out of that slow garage line.

More Information



Join Shakespeare and his winsome troupe in this fantastic new tale that satiates Bard-loving purists and advocates of groundbreaking theater alike. The runaway hit of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and a sure-to-be classic, _Equivocation _pits the poetry of the world’s greatest playwright against the word of his King. Written in modern English with playful allusions to some of the Bard’s greatest works, Equivocation’s gripping narrative, keen humor and political intrigue culminate in what critics are calling “dazzling,” “a masterful work” and “the must-see play of the season.”
