Free Shakespeare in Carlson Park Every Saturday and Sunday from July 16 to August 21

Posted by Scupine on July 21, 2016 at 4:30am 0 Comments

Each Saturday and Sunday at 2:00 from this Saturday July 16 to August 21, the Culver City Public Theater will perform Shakespeare's As You Like It. The play, one of Shakespeare's most effervescent comedies, features cross-dressing in the forest of Arden. Nuff said. Watch for the oft-quoted "All the world's a stage" speech. 

Each 2:00 performace is preceded at 12:00 by a super-family-friendly performance of the Children's Popcorn Theatre's original play, Frog Tails

If past Culver City Public Theater presentations are any indication, the show will pull in a fun crowd, and will be a terrific way to spend a warm summer afternoon in the park.

Carlson Park is located at the corner of Motor Avenue and Braddock Drive.…

Can you imagine a 30-story high-rise residential tower sticking up out of the low-lying landscape of La Cienega Boulevard and Jefferson Boulevard (in the former KABC/KLOS radio site)? Well, that's what we're in for. 

According to a recent LA Observed article, the "megadevelopment" and sky-scraper and have been approved by the LA city council and are slated to begin construction in 2018.

The story observes that, since the lot is La Cienega/Jefferson Expo Station adjacent, it "makes civic sense" and that "new stores and restaurants would be welcome by many in the neighborhood," but also points out:

Friend of CCT Jay Garacochea brings us this chilling news:

"I would like to invite you all to a developer's community meeting at Vet's Auditorium on June 21st at 7pm regarding a new project being proposed at 11281 Washington Place, at the intersection of Washington Place and Sawtelle Blvd.
