Best Foray into Minimalist Theater 

California Shakespeare Theater

Cal Shakes' productions usually benefit from lavish theatrics and a majestic setting (its amphitheater is nestled in the Orinda hills). For its all-female production of Twelfth Night, the company performed under fluorescent lighting at Intersection for the Arts, and then in a homeless shelter, a detention center, and a library as part of a community tour, all with little more than costumes, as in Shakespeare's day. But this outstanding cast needed no design aid; its rich display of comedic skill alone elucidated and invigorated the text.
