For the ultimate show of Cal Shakes’ 2010 season, the audience will see even more greenery than usual at the Bruns Amphitheater: To help create the lush atmosphere of Much Ado About Nothing‘s Messina, director Jonathan Moscone asked Will’s Weeders, our all-volunteer-staffed and -funded gardening group, to landscape the stage, as well.
Below, check out some photos of the work in progress, all by Paul S. Doyle.
