Available July 8 – August 7, 2010, the special also includes: a gourmet picnic provided by Uncle Yu’s at the Vineyard, a bottle of Concannon wine with engraved Livermore Valley Wine Country glasses, a full hot buffet breakfast, complimentary wine tasting at select wineries, as well as a Livermore Downtown Guest Pass for discounts at participating businesses in the charming, historic downtown shopping district.
Available Thursday through Sunday, package customers can opt to see either Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet, or The Real Thing — a play by Tom Stoppard, the author of the critically acclaimed Shakespeare in Love.
A Summer in Love in 2010
“This summer we look at love — a passionate all-consuming love sprung from the innocence of youth pitted against a bitter hatred, seasoned with age and ego,” said Lisa Tromovitch, producing artistic director, Livermore Shakespeare Festival. “Romeo and Juliet is a classic because it is all still true. When we are young, we love because it is right to love. But as we get older, in The Real Thing, one of the great minds of our time explores the phenomena of love and passion.”
