Griffith Park Free Shakespeare Festival
Time Out says
Each summer, Bard fanatics watch their favorite works come to life at the historic Old Zoo in Griffith Park. Independent Shakespeare Co. puts on a series of lively productions each week, inviting audiences to take a seat on the grass (read: bring a picnic blanket) and enjoy performances like this season’s headliner: The Tempest.
You’ll find a few changes to the 2021 season: Since work is still underway on a permanent performance stage, the Independent Shakespeare Co. is instead setting up slightly farther up the hill at the Old Zoo. That means each performance will only be able to accommodate about 250 people, so reservations will be required. Tickets will become available seven days in advance of each performance, for pods of up to four people.
