Much Adoobie Brothers About Nothing
Joseph Leo Bwarie, Eric Anderson, and Daren Herbert. Shakespeare? Sure!
Laist doesn't think you have anything better to do with your weekend than see a Shakespearean musical cobbled together from the music of the Doobie Brothers.
Yes, the Doobie Brothers.
The Troubadour Theatre Company, helmed by their clowning-and-commedia-steeped director Matt Walker, has perfected the foolish, boisterous aspects of Shakespearean comedy, through a judicious pairing with the best in smooth rock.
Their latest offering, at the Miles Playhouse in Santa Monica now through Sept. 24, Much Adoobie Brothers About Nothing, follows on the successful and spastic heels of many past productions, including The Comedy of Aerosmith, Fleetwood Macbeth, and our personal favorite: Romeo Hall and Juliet Oates.
(Yacht Rock, anyone?)
