Year in Review: Independent Shakespeare Co.'s 'Macbeth'

GrettelCortes.jpg

In 2013, we published hundreds of articles, produced numerous short documentaries, and aired hour-long television episodes. We traversed the cultural landscapes sprawling across our state from the metropolises to the towns, between the coast and the desert, across the border, and into the mountains. On New Year's Day, we aired a three-hour Artbound Marathon which featured a mash up of our episodes into one explosion of Southern California arts and culture. And for the next few days, we will be reliving some of our most read features, breaking them down by theme. We hope you enjoy catching up on all the artistic discussions and activities that make California the creative capital of the world!
