Laguna Beach Cultural Arts Center and Bare Bones Theatre Present Shakespeare's Fool

A rambunctious romp through songs and speeches from Shakespeare’s plays, with wit, wisdom, and silliness in between.

There are many songs in the plays of William Shakespeare – the lyrics have survived, but the melodies are lost to time. Jason Feddy has written fresh, modern tunes for 10 of The Bard’s greatest hits, performed with his energetic acoustic guitar and voice of a smoky angel. Shakespeare’s words truly come to life for today’s audience. 

Jason is a professional singer songwriter and troubadour. He is Laguna Beach Arts Alliance Artist of The Year 2019.

Presented alongside speeches from The Canon – some iconic, some lesser-known treasures – delivered by Jason’s wife, actor Ava Burton and an invited gang of their actor friends. Ava is a graduate of London’s East 15 Acting School and specializes in Shakespeare. 

This production includes speeches and surprises performed by local actors and more than one Hollywood luminary. 

Press quotes:

“Rumpled Charm” New York Times

“Scholars and skeptics alike are entertained” Laguna Beach Independent

“Ava Burton shows tremendous versatility and total credibility” Gazette & Herald
