Clayton Garrison, founding dean of the School of Fine Arts at the University of California, Irvine, died July 27 at the age of 93. He was a visionary stage director, choreographer and theater professor who left a lasting imprint on UCI and what’s now known as the Claire Trevor School of the Arts.
This first season of what will be an annual event features reimagined versions of William Shakespeare’s “The Comedy of Errors” and “The Merchant of Venice” that take place in the Wild West and 1930s Italy, respectively.
