CityShakes’ company members went for a walk on the 3rd Street Promenade last weekend and had a helluva time. The lovely folks at BritWeek invited us to do some guerrilla-flash-mob-style Shakespeare on the promenade, and then perform on the BritWeek mainstage.

People paused to check us out – they laughed, applauded, and asked us who we were and what we were doing. It was a great time – such a great time, in fact, that CityShakes is currently getting its own busking permit. That way we can continue to supplement our full-scale Santa Monica productions with FREE outdoor Shakespeare.

Check out these photos below taken by the fabulous Ashley Tsai. (She’s now LA-based and up-for-hire!)
