Cal Shakes’ new season

California Shakespeare Theater has announced its 2008 summer season, and like this season, it’s two Shakespeares and two non-Shakespeares.

Pericles by William Shakespeare runs May 28 through June 22, directed by Joel Sass.

An Ideal Husband by Oscar Wilde runs July 2 through 27, directed by Jonathan Moscone.

Uncle Vanya by Anton Chekhov runs Aug. 6-31, directed by Timothy Near.

Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare runs Sept. 10 through Oct. 5, directed by Mark Rucker.

“This is a perfect gem of a seas — dynamic in scope and style, coupling Shakespeare’s greatest, deepest comedy with his wildest and wooliest romance,” said artistic director Moscone in a statement. “And Wilde and Chekhov both bring such elegance and passion, wit and depth.”
