A Selective Guide to the Arts in Los Angeles

Odyssey Theatre Ensemble and Los Angeles Women’s Shakespeare Company present an elegant, all-female classical production of “Hamlet” as revealed through women’s voices. Continuing the LAWSC tradition of upending our expectations of Shakespeare’s familiar texts by pricking our ears to listen anew to his masterful characters and plotting, the production evokes a politically dynamic, sexually provocative and spiritually awakened frame of reference. A highly accomplished cast of women is led by LAWSC founder/artistic director Lisa Wolpe in the title role.

Culture Spot LA readers can win a pair of tickets to the show on Friday, Sept. 6, at 8 p.m. To be entered in the drawing, please email editor@culturespotla.com with “Hamlet” in the subject line.
