Los Angeles has plenty of beautiful performing arts centers to see theater in, but during summer, Angelenos want to be outside, and there are lots of options, from rooftop bars to the best beaches in Los Angeles. So why shouldn’t we be able to see theater outdoors too? Well, we can. Here are the best outdoor theater options in LA, whether in an amphitheater in the Valley or at an annual tradition in a cemetery.
Will Geer’s Theatricum Botanicum’s Summer Repertoire Season takes place in its authentic wooden amphitheater, making it the perfect setting for classic Shakespeare productions or world premieres. Summer 2016 will see the Bard’s Romeo & Juliet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Titus Andronicus, as well as the world premiere of Tom (adapted by Ellen Geer) and The Imaginary Invalid.
