William Shakespeare’s “The Winter’s Tale” Comes To A Noise Within

first_img More Cool Stuff Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * Events Previews William Shakespeare’s “The Winter’s Tale” Comes To A Noise Within Directed by Geoff Elliott; Feb. 9 – Apr. 11, 2020 STAFF REPORT Published on Thursday, January 16, 2020 | 1:55 pm Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Make a comment Community News Subscribe Top of the News Community News First Heatwave Expected Next Week Photo by Daniel ReichertA Noise Within (ANW), California’s acclaimed classic repertory theatre company, is proud to present William Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale, directed by ANW Producing Artistic Director Geoff Elliott.The Winter’s Tale will run Feb. 9 through Apr. 11, 2020 with press performances on Saturday, Feb. 15 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Feb. 16 at 2 p.m.Bitter winter thaws into a spring of regeneration and miraculous forgiveness in William Shakespeare’s celebrated romance. “This story shows what psychotic jealousy can do to a family and even a country,” said Producing Artistic Director Geoff Elliott. “Leontes starts out as paranoid and egotistical – he builds monuments to himself. But after he destroys everything he’s ever loved, he spends the rest of the play atoning for it, believing he has no hope left. His extraordinary arc concludes with a dramatic scene of forgiveness that’s both surprising and moving.”The Winter’s Tale re-discovers all that was thought to be lost: old friendships restored; families reunited; and star-crossed lovers beating the odds to be together. Even the most impossible miracles become possible through fantastical feats and wondrous magic.“The play has some of the most beautiful language in the canon,” said Elliott. “We’ve streamlined it to the core story of Leontes’ transformation to make it more accessible, without losing any of the fairy tale enchantment that permeates the story.”ANW’s Words Within reading series will tie into the themes of The Winter’s Tale by presenting the first reading of the year, Exit, Pursued by a Bear by Lauren Gunderson on Monday, Jan. 20 at 7 p.m. This smart, dark revenge comedy leads us through a night of emotional trials and ridiculous theatrics. Gunderson takes Shakespeare’s most famous stage direction and turns it (and us) on our heads.ANW’s Noise Now program is partnering with TheatreWorkers Project to present to.be.FREE, in which five formerly incarcerated men will redefine their personal narratives through physical theatre and text using themes from The Winter’s Tale. Through Project Re/Frame, dedicated to the creation of pieces based on the writing and stories of those impacted by mass incarceration, participants develop, rehearse, and perform original work presented to diverse audiences. This newest project, to.be.FREE, performed on Mar. 6 at 7:30 p.m. at A Noise Within, will use the following text from The Winter’s Tale as a launching off point for personal storytelling: “a wild dedication of yourselves. To undiscovered waters, undreamed shores.”MKM Bollystars returns for their 3rd collaboration with ANW’s Noise Now program, this time re-envisioning Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale through Indian classical dance. Recognizing the parallel experiences of Hermione from The Winter’s Tale and Sita from the Ramayana, choreographers Shalini Bathina and Shivani Thakkar bring you a new creation delving into Her Story. Bollystars has roots in a rich dance heritage as an offspring of the well-established and recognized Bharata Natyam (Indian classical) dance institution Manu Kala Mandir (MKM) Dance Productions and Academy. Their dance performance of Her Story will take place at A Noise Within on Mar. 26 & 27 at 7:15 p.m.These events are curated to enhance A Noise Within’s mainstage production of The Winter’s Tale, which Elliott believes will delight any Shakespeare fan.“Everything you love about Shakespeare is here,” concluded Elliott. “Incredibly rich language. Intense emotional drama. The Winter’s Tale takes an evocative look at jealousy and mental illness, sweeps us away with passionate romance, and, ultimately, reminds us of the life-changing power of redemption and forgiveness.”Single ticket prices for The Winter’s Tale start at $25 and are available at anoisewithin.org, by phone at (626) 356-3121, and at the box office located at 3352 East Foothill Blvd in Pasadena.Pay What You Can (PWYC): Thursday, Feb. 13 at 7:30 p.m. – all tickets remaining are Pay What You Can, cash only, exact change appreciated, at the box office on day of performance after 2 p.m. Limit two per person. Suggested price of $10.Sunday Rush: Mar. 22 at 7 p.m. and Apr. 5 at 7 p.m. – all tickets remaining are $25, available online after 12 a.m. day of performance with the code SUNDAYRUSH or at the box office, cash or credit, after 2 p.m. day of performance.Symposium and Post-Show ConversationsThis run of The Winter’s Tale includes a symposium with Chapman University Professor Kent Lehnhof at 6:45 p.m. on Feb. 12, 2020 and post-show conversations on Feb. 21, Mar. 22 at 2p.m., Mar. 27, and Apr. 10.Wine Down WednesdaysGet a free glass of wine with your ticket when attending a Wednesday evening performance, including The Winter’s Tale’s Wednesday performances on Feb. 12 and Mar. 18.ANW’s 2019-2020 Season – They Played with Fire“THEY PLAYED WITH FIRE indeed! A Noise Within’s 2019-20 season embraces the incandescent power of change,” said ANW Producing Artistic Director Geoff Elliott. “Our upcoming titles are peopled with formidable characters—torches in hand—willing to either burn down the house or build a mansion of possibility.”The Winter’s Tale will run in rotating repertory through the spring with Eva Le Gallienne and Florida Friebus’ classic adaptation of Alice in Wonderland (directed by Stephanie Shroyer; March 1 – April 18, 2020). Stephen Sondheim’s Tony Award®-winning musical thriller Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (directed by Julia Rodriguez-Elliott; May 10 – June 7, 2020) will fan the flames before closing out ANW’s most ambitious season yet.ANW Producing Artistic Director Julia Rodriguez-Elliott said, “Whether the characters of our productions are teetering on the precipice of redemption (Gem of the Ocean; The Winter’s Tale) or revenge (Sweeney Todd), or haunting revelation (Frankenstein; Buried Child), or even an outrageous romp down a rabbit hole (Alice in Wonderland), they are all staking their lives on a chance to transform the world around them.”“We invite you to join us as we venture with these risk-takers, revolutionaries, and game changers. We will see you at the theatre,” said ANW Producing Artistic Directors Geoff Elliott and Julia Rodriguez-Elliott.About the PlayShakespeare’s canon of plays can be roughly divided into four genres: tragedies, comedies, histories, and romances. Shakespeare’s romance plays are a mix of tragedy and comedy. The mark of a Shakespearean tragedy is that the play ends in a number of deaths, onstage and off, while Shakespearean comedies characteristically end in marriages. Romances typically begin as tragedies, but do not end that way, as is the case with The Winter’s Tale.These plays are imbued with a melancholy tone, and the action tends to center on remedying a past injustice. Forgiveness is central to the endings of the romance plays. While not all of the wrongs committed over the course of the play are righted, much of what is broken is mended. Reflection plays a key role in these plays as characters grapple with events of the past and embark on a physical or emotional journey toward peace and reconciliation. By the end of a romance play, the surviving characters have matured.Elements of magic and fantasy play significant roles in the romance plays. These elements contribute to an ambiguous and mystical setting for each of the plays—none of the romance plays take place strictly within the realm of a familiar reality. The elements of magic and mystery complement the transformations that the characters make throughout the play.Like many of Shakespeare’s plays, The Winter’s Tale is not an entirely original narrative. Critics have long regarded The Winter’s Tale as a play, in large part, derived from Robert Greene’s 1588 romance novella, Pandosto, The Triumph of Time. Shakespeare made the play distinct by changing all character names and introducing several changes and additions to the plot. While Shakespeare makes Leontes’ suspicion more groundless than it appears in the original, he also revises the original story’s tragic ending in which the Leontes character kills himself after discovering he has lusted after the Perdita character, unaware that she is his daughter. Shakespeare also creates the characters Paulina and Antigonus—characters who are integral to the unfolding of the play’s particular telling of the events. Probably the wildest addition to the original’s plot is Shakespeare’s inclusion of a bear.About A Noise WithinA Noise Within has been called “an oasis for those who love classic stories” by the Los Angeles Times and is a leading regional producer based in Pasadena.  ANW’s award-winning resident company practices a rotating repertory model at their state-of-the-art, 324-seat performance space. This venue, established in 2011, has allowed ANW to expand its audience, surpassing its previous box office, subscription, and attendance records year after year.In addition to producing world-class performances of classic theatre, the organization runs robust education programs committed to inspiring diverse audiences of all ages. Helmed by Producing Artistic Directors Geoff Elliott and Julia Rodriguez-Elliott, who hold MFAs from San Francisco’s renowned American Conservatory Theatre (A.C.T.), A Noise Within truly delivers Classic Theatre, Modern Magic. http://www.anoisewithin.orgcenter_img faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Herbeauty9 Of The Best Family Friendly Dog BreedsHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyA Mental Health Chatbot Which Helps People With DepressionHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty7 Most Startling Movie Moments We Didn’t Realize Were InsensitiveHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyJennifer Lopez And Alex Rodriguez’s Wedding DelayedHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty9 Of The Best Metabolism-Boosting Foods For Weight LossHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThat Sale Made Kim A BillionaireHerbeautyHerbeauty 124 recommendedShareShareTweetSharePin it Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

L.A. County Board of Supervisors Will Evaluate Options to Remove Sheriff

first_img More Cool Stuff The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted 3-2 on Tuesday to look at options for removing elected Sheriff Alex Villanueva as the county’s top lawman, rather than waiting to see if voters will do so in 2022.Supervisors Kathryn Barger, who represents Altadena and Pasadena, and Janice Hahn dissented, saying the matter should be left in the hands of Los Angeles County voters.Supervisors Mark Ridley-Thomas and Sheila Kuehl co-authored the motion recommending that the county direct its lawyers, inspector general, civilian oversight commissioners and acting CEO to look at possible avenues for removing the sheriff or cutting back his responsibilities.Those options could include changes to how the sheriff enters office, switching from voter approved to a county appointed position. That would require an amendment to the state constitution.Since an elected sheriff is mandated in the state constitution, oversight by commissions and the supervisors is limited if the sheriff refuses to comply with recommendations. As a result, the supervisors cannot manage the sheriff in the way that Pasadena city officials can manage an appointed police chief.Villanueva came under fire this summer when he threatened to close the Altadena substation after the supervisors cut his budget. He later refused to comply with a subpoena to appear before the Civilian Oversight Commission, which called for him to resign last month.Every member of the Board of Supervisors has raised concerns about Villanueva’s lack of accountability, including his willingness to flout subpoenas issued by oversight agencies. Yet the board split on this particular issue, with both sides claiming the moral high ground of supporting democratic principles.Ridley-Thomas — who tabled consideration of the motion two weeks ago when Barger and Hahn first indicated their opposition — said the idea of an elected sheriff was outdated.“Despite the exponential growth of the county and tremendous advances of modern-day policing, we are still beholden to this anachronistic model of law enforcement,” Ridley-Thomas said, reading from an opinion piece he wrote in 2014 for the Huffington Post.“We hold a popularity contest for arguably our most important law enforcement position. The result is that we have something worse than democracy — we have the illusion of democracy,” he said.Hahn said democracy dictated that voters settle the matter.“It’s no secret that this board does not see eye-to-eye with this particular sheriff, and I have to point out that it’s not for lack of trying … this sheriff has acted like he’s not accountable to anyone but himself,” Hahn said. However, “(voters) can recall him or they can vote him out when his term is up. That’s how democracy works … I don’t think it’s our job to removean elected official.”Supervisor Hilda Solis asked that consideration of a report on options for dealing with the sheriff postponed until January so that state Sen. Holly Mitchell, just elected to replace Ridley-Thomas, could lend her voice to the discussion.The termed-out Ridley-Thomas, who was elected last week to replace Herb Wesson on the Los Angeles City Council, agreed to support Solis’ suggestion.The changes under consideration include amending the state constitution to move to an appointed, rather than elected sheriff. Many activists said the current sheriff is just the latest flawed leader of the department and expressed support for a permanent shift to an appointed post.Mark-Anthony Clayton-Johnson of JusticeLA recalled meeting with then-Sheriff Lee Baca — who would later be convicted of obstruction of justice and lying to the FBI — at LASD headquarters 10 years ago as a moment that helped sparked a movement.“We walked out of that meeting with a very clear and prophetic mandate, knowing that whatever mechanisms of accountability and transparency and shifts in power for Black and Brown people that we were going to build had to be bigger than the denial of Sheriff Baca, bigger than the sadistic arrogance of (then-Undersheriff Paul) Tanaka, bigger than the rejection of subpoena power by (ex)-Sheriff (Jim) McDonnell, bigger than the expensive recalcitrance of Villanueva,” Clayton-Johnson said. “Four years is a long time to wait for a ballot box to check a rogue sheriff.”Others worried about the board’s own expansive power.“We definitely don’t want to give the Board of Supervisors more power, but we feel like we don’t have a choice because the sheriff is so out of control,” said Pastor Stephen “Cue” Jn-Marie of The Church Without Walls.“The sheriff is elected not mainly to exercise power but primarily to ensure public safety.”A constitutional amendment to appoint rather than elect the Los Angeles County sheriff would likely affect all 58 counties and bring them in line with city jurisdictions, which appoint police chiefs. Other possibilities include pulling some of Villanueva’s responsibilities and appointing a county police chief, which Kuehl said she found most interesting.Villanueva addressed the board during public comment, offering a wide-ranging account of all he has accomplished.“I want to say, first of all, that there is an awful lot of badinformation and false information out there, and we need to correct the record,” Villanueva said. “Because of my efforts since I took office, ICE is gone from jails and courthouses and patrol stations … body-worn cameras are now here to stay … the Banditos in East L.A., that clique has been broken up, people have been held accountable … the anti-clique policy that every previous sheriff refused to enact, I did enact.“ … I have hired 1,100 deputies in one year, which is a record … our own sons and daughters from our own communities are now the ones serving. These are people of color that we’re hiring,” Villanueva said before going on to list his department’s efforts to limit the spread of the coronavirus and expand outreach to homeless people living on the streets.Villanueva came under fire soon after he took office after he attempted to rehire fired deputies.He closed with a plea to work together. Barger said she planned to take the sheriff up on his offer to meet and would aim to move forward in a spirit of cooperation.“We cannot make long-term policy decisions based on the short-term personalities that be,” Barger said. “I do not support many of (his) actions and have significant concerns with (Villanueva’s) ability to appropriately lead our Sheriff’s Department, but I do support the office, and more importantly, I support our personnel.”The civilian oversight commission has called for the sheriff’s resignation. Villanueva has dismissed the commission as a political tool — though it was instituted in response to jail violence that predated his tenure – – and accused the group of punishing him for investigating potential county corruption.As part of their argument for taking more drastic action, Ridley-Thomas and Kuehl highlighted what they characterized as Villanueva’s “inability to balance the LASD budget,” pointing to his unilateral moves to cut youth programs and eliminate the parks services bureau.The board also voted Tuesday to request that the sheriff and the Parks Department sign a new agreement by the end of this month to provide security at county parks through June 30. If a new agreement is not finalized by Nov. 30, the acting CEO will have the authority to reallocate roughly $18.5 million from the sheriff’s budget to the Parks Department to pay for security services.Though the union that represents rank-and-file deputies has also criticized the sheriff for failing to confer with them about closing various bureaus and moving staff to new posts, it appears for now to support Villanueva.This is the second consecutive sheriff the board has called on to resign. Several years ago, after Sheriff Lee Baca was implicated in an FBI investigation, Baca also refused to resign. He was later convicted of obstruction of justice and lying to the FBI. In February, Baca began serving a three-year federal prison sentence for obstruction of justice and lying to the FBI. Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Required fields are marked * Top of the News Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Pasadena city officials have set up online inquiry forms for education, child care, food and agriculture workers to be notified when COVID-19 vaccines are available now that those groups are eligible for vaccination under state guidelines.Meanwhile, the city recorded 32 new infections and one new death on Wednesday, city spokeswoman Lisa Derderian said. No details regarding the most recent fatality were available.Over the course of the pandemic, Pasadena has seen a total of 10,949 cases of the virus and 317 deaths, according to city data.Huntington Hospital reported treating 38 COVID-19 patients on Wednesday, with nine of those people requiring treatment in intensive care units. The facility saw an average of four new COVID-19 admissions over the prior week.With education, child care, food and agriculture workers now eligible for vaccination under state guidelines, city officials have created online inquiry pages for members of those groups to fill out so they can be notified when vaccine doses are available. Emergency service providers are also included in the state’s new group of eligible workers, but the vast majority of them in Pasadena have already been inoculated.The forms can be found online at https://www.cityofpasadena.net/public-health/covid-19-vaccine.Officials urged residents to also consult with their primary care physicians about vaccine availability.As COVID-19 numbers continued to improve in Los Angeles County, and with more restrictions likely to be lifted in coming weeks, the county’s public health director warned today that while an end to the pandemic is in sight, it’s not over yet.“Our biggest worry is, of course, that people will relax too much, decide not to wear their face mask, decide not to keep their distance, decide to go back to having big parties,” Dr. Barbara Ferrer said during a virtual briefing. “We’re just not there yet. None of that would be safe at this point, and all of it can cause spread.”Her warning came amid continuing downward trends in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, but with daily deaths regularly topping 100 and more variants of the virus appearing that could more quickly spread through a community still struggling to get fully vaccinated.Ferrer said the county has now confirmed the first case of a COVID variant discovered in Brazil, and the number of cases of a variant that originated in the United Kingdom has shot up to 27, up from 18 known cases last week. And a California variant is becoming increasingly dominant, with county officials detecting the mutation in 31 of 55 specimens that were specifically tested for it.“We still have a lot of community transmission,” Ferrer said. “We still have variants that are dominating that are thought to be more infectious, that’s the California variant, and an increased probability that we have more of the U.K. variant circulating as well. So our work is not done.”She said news that vaccine supplies are expected to vastly increase in the coming months — beginning next week with the anticipated arrival of the first doses of the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine — means an end is in sight. But people can’t abandon all infection-control measures before reaching the finish line.“That means that we don’t have that much further to go, and it would just be horrible if in the few months that are left we go through another surge,” Ferrer said. “Our county frankly can’t afford that in multiple ways. We don’t want to do the see-sawing on opening and closing again.”Los Angeles County is on track to exit the restrictive purple tier of the state’s four-level economic-reopening roadmap by late March. If it advances to the less-restrictive red tier, more businesses could be cleared to open, including indoor dining, movie theaters and fitness centers, all at limited capacity.Figures released by the state Tuesday put the county’s adjusted average daily rate of new COVID-19 infections at 7.2 per 100,000 residents. If that number falls to 7 per 100,000 residents and stays at that level for two weeks, the county will be able to move out of the restrictive purple tier of the state’s “Blueprint for a Safer Economy,” and into the red tier. The county already meets the other two required metrics — with an average testing-positivity rate of just 3.5% and a “health equity quartile” of 5.1% — to advance to the red tier.Ferrer noted that in addition to allowing more businesses to open, moving to the red tier would also allow in-person instruction to resume for students in grades 7-12. The county already meets the requirements for in-person classes for pre-kindergarten through sixth grade.She got emotional as she read comments from recent discussions with school children about the difficulties the pandemic has caused on their families and their ability to continue learning.“This pandemic has been extraordinarily difficult for so many, and it’s been powerful for us all to hear the voices of young people who have had the courage to tell us in their own words how they’re feeling,” Ferrer said, her voice breaking. “This is why we really do need to recommit ourselves to use every single tool we have to reduce transmission, to vaccinate everybodywho’s eligible and get to a place where all of our children can get back to school with the safety that’s required in their school community.“Our children have been through something that none of us experienced as children, and we owe them all our support and our effort so that they can be as safe as possible as we move toward a more healthy future.”Ferrer announced another 116 COVID-19 deaths on Wednesday. The new deaths lifted the countywide death toll from throughout the pandemic to 21,669.Another 1,759 cases were also announced, lifting the overall total to 1,195,913.The California Department of Public Health announced 3,352 new infections and 278 deaths, raising the statewide totals to 3,484,963 COVID-19 cases and 52,775 fatalities.The state’s average positivity rate over the prior two weeks held steady at 2.6%, according to CDPH data.As of Wednesday, L.A. County represented 34% of California’s COVID-19 infections and 41% of the state’s deaths.Related:81.7% of Pasadena Seniors Vaccinated Against COVID-19last_img read more
