    rick-lombardo-as-you-like-it-director-debut-san-jose-repertory

    Rick Lombardo’s eagerly anticipated ‘As You Like It’ opens in three nights at the San Jose Repertory Theatre. It should prove to be a compelling mix of Shakespearean beauty combined with U2 Zoo TV-like on-stage imagery. A modern, Silicon Valley take on a classic.

    Meanwhile, the lights are down. So are the curtains. What’s happening backstage @ the Rep… ?

    The green room. Fire curtains. And yes, sand bags and lighting rigs. Join Loni on a back stage pass tour, with artistic director Rick Lombardo and discover what goes on behind the scenes.

    Watch closely: you may even hear me in this one, even though I’m not supposed to interrupt the on-air talent. Discover my favorite film genre, and how I escape near death among the labyrinths of the theater. Oh, the drama!

    Tune in all season long to Stark Insider as we bring you inside coverage of the San Jose Repertory Theatre including stories, reviews, videos, podcasts and more.
