Hollywood Forever is a beautiful cemetary.I prepared a feast of a picnic. We arrived early and got a front row patch of grass so we were right with the actors on the rolling green. It felt as though we were in the king's court viewing the play as...continued

The show was delightful! I can't wait until next summer's Shakespeare in the Cemetary! Will we tame shrews or visit merchants in Venice?

Review from Sandee

A fun performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream in the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, the actors had a good grasp of the play and its fantasy element. The modern touches were unusual, but not bad. I loved the performance space and would definitely...continued
