Doors open at 6PM. Show begins at 7PM. 

Prepare to fall in love under the stars during a magical night of wonder and whimsy in the BMoA sculpture garden.

Jennifer Sampson's compilation, The Very Ecstasy of Love, shows glimpses into the lives of Shakespeare's favorite couples – Romeo & Juliet, Kate & Petruchio, Beatrice & Benedick, and others – to weave a tale of the course of love. 

Bring your own blankets or beach chairs*, a picnic basket, and a bottle of wine for this exceptional open air production experience.  If you prefer a chair over a blanket, purchase Reserved Seating tickets to secure a chair in a prime viewing location. 

*Beach chairs must be low-sitting only.  General admission seating is on the grass with first come, first served availability.  Appropriate for Ages 7 and up. 

All showings are sold out. Please call the Museum at 661-323-7219 to be placed on the waiting list. You may also come on the day of the show to see if there is any available seating.
