(SPOT.ph) Repertory Philippines stages "Shakespeare in Hollywood," Ken Ludwig’s comedy set in 1930’s Hollywood, from April 1 to 17 at Onstage, Greenbelt 1 in Makati.

Winner of the Helen Hayes Award for Best New Play in 2004, the play tells of the making of the Warner Brothers 1935 movie version of Shakespeare’s "A Midsummer Night’s Dream." The "real" Puck and Oberon time-travel to 1935 and lands on the set of the movie, just before shooting begins. What follows is a farce that involves the likes of Will Hayes, Joe E. Brown, Jimmy Cagney, Dick Powell, Louella Parsons, Olivia De Havilland, the bimbo Lydia and the Warner brothers.
