Travis Schuldt and Kathryn Gordon in CardenioTravis Schuldt (ex Ethan, PAS) co-founder of The Lone Star Ensemble, the non-profit theatre company behind last year's acclaimed production of "Venus and Adonis," is mounting a modern adaptation of an obscure manuscript now believed to be William Shakespeare's controversial "lost" play, CARDENIO.  The production is currently underway at the 2100 Square Feet theatre on San Vicente in Los Angeles.

Here's what critics are saying:

"Crackles with ingenuity, intelligence, and wonderfully ironic wit.  The show offers so many compelling visual moments and takes so many theatrical risks that the entire experience is a living, breathing argument for what often makes 99-Seat theatre more interesting than most Equity spectacles."  -Paul Birchall, Back Stage West - CRITIC'S PICK

"Crackling entertainment of a most precocious stripe.  The Lone Star Ensemble is a vibrant company that bears watching."  -F. Kathleen Foley, Los Angeles Times.

CARDENIO stars Corey Hayes, Steve Lipinsky, Megan Henning, Brian Stanton, Lisa Hagood, Travis Schuldt (ex Ethan, PAS), Kathryn Gordon, Kevin Will, Louis Hale, Andrew Stoddard, Jay Thames, Peter Hancock, David E. Reaves, and Jennifer Slimko.  Directed by James Kerwin.

CARDENIO runs Thursdays through Sundays, August 8 - September 15 at the 2100 Square Feet theatre, 5615 San Vicente Blvd. (between Fairfax and La Brea) in Los Angeles.  Show times are 8:00 pm Thursday through Saturday; 7:00 Sunday (August 11 - September 8); and 3:00 Sunday (September 15 only).  There will be no performances Labor Day weekend (August 29 - September 1).  Tickets are $15.  For reservations call 323-650-5111.   

"The Lone Star Ensemble is a new amalgam of attractive young friends who met in college and have reconnected in a common goal: to make it in The Industry and still create some damn good live theater while they do it.  These folks know what they're doing."  -Travis Michael Holder, Entertainment Today
