Shakespeare The hazards of performing in the open air: "At Theatricum Botanicum, dogs and toddlers have strolled onto the stage, owls have swooped down. I've seen bats and birds compete for audience attention, and apparently shooting stars have been known to divert viewers, too. At a Shakespeare L.A. Pershing Square show, a homeless man wandered onstage during Juliet's solo scene; a security person shooed him off. Leaves blow into teacups in prim drawing-room scenes. Once during The Seagull at Cal Shakes, the wind flung two area rugs across the stage. "You acknowledge the situation with good humor and then move on," says Marshall."
