VIP Opening Reception: Muses of the Old Globe

What is the event about?

Join us for the VIP Opening Reception of Muses of the Old Globe

It has been an extraordinary journey - from it's start at the 1935 California Pacific International Exposition to its current three theatre complex. That journey is revisited this fall at the Women's Museum of California. Themes of Shakespeare, strong community involvement, and artistic adaptation are unifying threads and from its beginnings, women have played a strong role in the Globe's story.
