Or What You Will

Performing in the 2013 Green Show Friday, August 16 and Sunday, August 18.

A whimsical telling of Twelfth Night through movement and music.

Beth Lopes (Director) : Born and raised in the Bay Area in Northern California. Has a BFA in Drama and minor in Classics from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts and an MFA in Directing from UC Irvine. Favorite projects include: Pericles, Cymbeline, Lorca in a Green Dress, and The Crucible.

Matthew Roi Berger (Composer) : Matthew is a New York based Composer and Songwriter. He graduated NYU's Tisch School of the Arts in 2006 with a BFA in Drama. He has composed the music for several full length musicals including Fat Camp and the recent Spidermusical, as well as numerous songs for plays both classical and otherwise. Beth and Matt met working as actors on A Midsummer Night's Dream in 2007. Since then they have collaborated on seven projects in different roles. Most recently Matt wrote the original music for Beth's versions of Two Gentlemen of Verona and Lorca in a Green Dress, both at UC Irvine, and Ophelia's song in The Hamlet Project, an ongoing show in Los Angeles.

Or What You Will on Community: I have several different communities to which I belong: Shakespeare nerds, young directors, Greek lovers, Theater for change, female directors, interracial couples, OSF patrons, and newly, citizens of Los Angeles! I have felt like a member of the OSF community for years, but I look forward to joining that community as a presenter of art rather than a spectator this year. Specifically within that group, I am most excited to connect with the design community at OSF. Their designs have moved me for years and I would love to learn more about their journeys at the Festival!
