Shakin’ the Table in collaboration with CJ Theatre Online, PRESENTS "Much Ado About Nothing." This classic Shakespearean comedy that virtually reimagines the Hollywood socialite lifestyle. Directed by Ashlee Bell Caress, founder of Shakin’ the Table, whose mission is making The Bard accessible, exciting, and engaging for the masses. Designed and Zoom managed by Hayley and Steven Silvers of CJ Theatre Online, who, responding to the demand for theatre to go virtual, are committed to elevating artistry and bringing the thrill of live performance to viewer’s living rooms.
Refusing to be cowed by these chaotic and unfathomable times, this production of "Much Ado About Nothing" stands as a testament to the enduring power of artists, artistry and art itself. As well as our commitment to the dawn of this theatrical renaissance. This production honors our “now”, and shapes our future by calling on the legacy and the foundations of our “then”. As always, theatre belongs to its audience, and our audience is larger than ever. To reach them, we need you.
There are many opportunities for you to help us share our story, and to support this new avenue of theatrical performance. Whether that’s screenshots, monologues, interviews and more, we would be honored to speak about giving you unique access to every stage of this process.
in 2018 Shakin The Table started as a facebook group for people who love The Bard and wanted to organize table reads. I had just finished a production of Macbeth and found myself searching for ANY opportunities to perform Shakespeare again. Unfortunately in Los Angeles there wasn't much to find.
I wanted more! I wanted to explore his work further with others... friends, colleagues, advanced or beginner any like minded fan. So, I created a SAFE, welcoming, literary-headspace for ALL. Allowing us to become better actors, writers, poets, directors, multi-hyphenates and humans!
Welcome 2020, the birth of virtual theatre and here we are! Finally a Theatre, bringing to you LIVE production! with a modern take on our favorite classics!
