Two Weeks and Counting….

Most places slow down in the summer. Summer Fridays, wearing flip flops, extra long coffee breaks – but Antaeus isn’t most places. Every summer, Antaeus presents ClassicsFest, a summerlong festival celebrating all things classical theater. It’s six weeks filled with workshops, readings, and special events. The best part? The price. Just about every ticket is only ten dollars.

In the past, ClassicsFest has had one big production running all summer, with workshops and readings occurring on off nights. This summer, we’re mixing things up and those workshops and readings are taking center stage. You can see a Work in Process, the most fully-staged of our ClassicsFest productions, performed Wednesday through Friday nights, or a one-time-only First Look reading on a Sunday.  On Saturdays, come spend the whole day at Antaeus with a Flight of Fancy – a performance paired with a pre-show discussion of the work. In addition to this jampacked schedule of some of the best theater in Los Angeles, we’ve also got great opening night parties, some fun food truck visits and a brand new partnership with The Federal, giving our audience members access to the ClassicsFest ClassicsFlight of beers all festival long, plus a $20 prix fixe dinner on Saturday nights.

The greatest thing about ClassicsFest is the sheer magnitude of it all. The amount of talent that will be featured on our stages is overwhelming and I’m hoping to use this blog to narrow the focus a little bit and take you inside the action. All summer, we’ll be checking in with lots of different people working on these shows to get their take on the process of ClassicsFest. Check in with us every Wednesday morning to see what’s happening now and what’s coming next.
