The Shakespeare Center of Los Angeles (SCLA) presented its 24th Annual Simply Shakespeare benefit reading of “As You Like It,” at the Freud Playhouse, UCLA Campus.  This year’s event honored the Entertainment Industry Foundation and its President and CEO, Lisa Paulsen for their continued dedication to bringing about positive change within health, arts education and social causes. Hosted by Rita Wilson and Tom Hanks, the hilarious evening of impromptu Shakespeare and song featured a star-studded cast including Paul Simon (as Amiens), Rita Wilson (Audrey), William Shatner (Duke Frederick and Duke Senior), Steve Carell (Corin and Charles the Wrestler), Martin Short (LeBeau, Sir Oliver Martext and Jack De Boys), Colin Hanks (Orlando), Gillian Jacobs (Rosalind) Christopher Lloyd (Adam),  Glenn Howerton (Oliver),  Kaitlin Olson (Celia), Bill Irwin (Touchstone), Sam Waterston (Jacques) and Sheldon Donenberg, (William).
 

The evening, sponsored by the Entertainment Industry Foundation and Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management, included a pre-show cocktail reception, followed by a post performance dessert reception with the cast.  All proceeds from the event support the SCLA and its arts based veterans employment and youth employment programs for inner-city youth, arts education in local schools, and professional union contracted productions at the Japanese Garden on the grounds of the West Los Angeles Veterans Medical Center.   

 

Rita Wilson presented the evening’s award to Lisa Paulsen, President and CEO of the Entertainment Industry Foundation citing their ongoing and generous support of SCLA, enriching and building community through professional theatrical traditions that are accessible to all.

 

Under the direction of SCLA founding Artistic Director Ben Donenberg, William Shakespeare’s endearing romantic comedy not only gave the bard’s words additional hilarity through the on-stage delivery and antics of its all-star cast, but wove in ten iconic songs from the legendary Paul Simon, in the role of Amiens, a lord and musician in the Forest of Arden, the play’s primary setting.  Met with wild applause from the 500 guests, Simon’s renditions of favorites included: “The 59th Street Bridge Song” and “Bridge Over Troubled Waters,” both duets with Rita Wilson; “The Boxer,” “Homeward Bound,” “Cecilia,” “Still Crazy After All These Years,” “Bookends” “Leaves That Are Green” and an all-cast finale featuring “Kodachrome.”

 

Appropriately, “As You Like It” features one of the most famous and oft-quoted speeches in literature, “All the world’s a stage…” delivered in tonight’s performance by Sam Waterston in the role of Jacques.

 

ABOUT ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY FOUNDATION:

The Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF), as a leading charitable organization of the entertainment industry, has distributed hundreds of millions of dollars to support charitable initiatives addressing critical health, arts education and social issues.  Visit http://www.eifoundation.org.

ABOUT SHAKESPEARE CENTER LOS ANGELES:

Since 1985, The Shakespeare Center of Los Angeles has been a vibrant hub of unique programs, performances and events designed to make Shakespeare accessible and engaging to all.  SCLA continues to build community through its innovative outreach programs including “Will Power to Youth,” an academic enrichment program that combines hands-on artistic experience with paid job training and arts education for at-risk youth.  The program has been nationally recognized for its effectiveness in reducing high school dropout rate and delinquency.  More importantly, it instills a lasting sense of creativity and competency in the youth who participate.

SCLA’s “Veterans in Art” program represents an innovation in veterans programming that explores how the arts can contribute in a meaningful way in the efforts to assist veterans to recover and reintegrate into mainstream Los Angeles civilian life.  This summer’s “Shakespeare Under The Stars” professional production of “Romeo & Juliet” incorporated a full veteran workforce supporting the production and continues to offer free tickets to active military, veterans and their families and care givers.  For more information on the Simply Shakespeare benefit performance or SCLA, please visit www.ShakespeareCenter.org.
