September 10, 2010 | 12:01 am


The summer theater season has scarcely come to a close and already there are some who are planning for next year. The Old Globe in San Diego announced that its 2011 summer lineup will feature six main productions including Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing," "The Tempest" and Peter Shaffer’s "Amadeus."

Adrian Noble, who recently took over as artistic director of the Old Globe's Shakespeare Festival, will return in 2011. He will direct the productions of "The Tempest" (June 5 to Sept. 25, 2011) and "Amadeus" (June 12 to Sept. 22, 2011).

"Much Ado About Nothing" (May 29 to Sept. 24), which will be directed by Ron Daniels, is set to run in repertory with the other two plays.

Rounding out the Old Globe's summer 2011 season are Hershey Felder's "George Gershwin Alone" (July 1 to July 10) and "Maestro: The Art of Leonard Bernstein" (July 15 to Aug. 28). In addition, the Old Globe will present John Morogiello's "Engaging Shaw" (July 29 to Sept. 4), a historical comedy based on the relationship between Charlotte Payne-Townshend and George Bernard Shaw.
