Odd Market and Classics in the Trees at Will Greer’s
Odd can be good and the Odd Market at the Autry Museum is just that with everything imaginable to enjoy. And how lovely to sit nestled in the midst of trees and gardens surrounded by Topanga Canyon and see very well-reviewed plays. Well, tomatoes, you can do all that at Will Geer’s Theatricum Botanicum during their annual summer repertory season through September. Lots to enjoy!
August 21. Odd Market
The Odd Night Market at the Autry Museum is a celebratory shopping extravaganza every third Friday of the month. Perhaps that is why they call it odd? It has got just about everything imaginable. Live local bands, beer gardens, cocktail lounges, a full bar, 20 gourmet food trucks, 200+ vendors, Bouncy Zone Rides, kid’s face painting, including handcrafted jewelry, fashionable duds, home goods, antiques, collectibles, artwork, and other quality handmade and vintage finds
The property is on 2 and a half acres in heart of Griffith Park. There’s a ton of parking or you could even ride your horse in, seriously. And it’s all free. No admission. Zip and Free Parking as in nada. Located directly across from the L.A. Zoo.
Phew…that IS a long list gals. AND your pets are welcome too. Sounds like a plan.
Now through September. Classics in the Trees
Will Geer’s Theatricum Botanicum is a little piece of heaven with a ton of imagination and outdoorsy fun. There is even a concession stand called “Hamlets Hut”. That is just a hint at the creativity you will experience there. Most of the plays in this summer’s repertory season are appropriate for kids except for one. And all have gotten terrific reviews. And if you are looking for totally fun time for your kids or grandkids there are the Peter Alsop’s Theatricum Kids Koncerts. And there is one coming up tomorrow (Aug. 15) with Tom Freund singing about skateboarding and happy lunch boxes. Hey I’m not a kid but that sounds fun!
Will Geer founded Theatricum Botanicum in 1973. The mission is to elevate, educate and entertain audiences of all ages by presenting thought-provoking classics, socially relevant plays, and education programs in a beautiful, natural outdoor sanctuary for the arts. By passing on a sense of history to young people and adults alike, great works of art inform their present and inspire their future. A true renaissance theatre.
