The Old Globe has announced plans for its 2016 Summer Season, which will feature The Summer Shakespeare Festival and also include a world premiere by Steve Martin and Paul Gordon's musical Sense and Sensibility.

The Shakespeare plays lined up for this year's Summer Shakespeare Festival are Macbeth and Love's Labour's Lost. Macbeth, directed by Brian Kulick, Artistic Director of Classic Stage Company, will run June 19-July 24 with opening night on June 25 in the Lowell Davies Festival Theatre. Then, three-time Tony Award winner Kathleen Marshall will helm Love's Labour's Lost from August 14-September 18, with opening night on August 20 in the Lowell Davies Festival Theatre.

Oscar, Emmy, and Grammy winner Steve Martin (whose show Bright Star will debut on Broadway this spring after a run at The Kennedy Center) will return to the Old Globe from July 30-September 4 with the world premiere of his new play Meteor Shower. Gordon Edelstein directs this adult comedy in a co-production with Long Wharf Theatre, where he serves as Artistic Director.

The season's final offering will be the West Coast premiere Paul Gordon's musical Sense and Sensibility, presented in association with Chicago Shakespeare Theater, from July 6-August 14. Sense and Sensibility had its world premiere at Chicago Shakespeare Theater in February 2015, directed by CST Artistic Director Barbara Gaines.
