Shakespeare in Love

Based on the screenplay by MARC NORMAN and TOM STOPPARD
Adapted for the stage by LEE HALL
Music by PADDY CUNNEEN

SEPT. 02 - SEPT. 30, 2017
Marx Theatre

Directed by BLAKE ROBISON

The beloved, Oscar-winning film comes to life onstage in an extravagant production that’s both wildly funny and irresistibly romantic. Young Will Shakespeare has writer's block... the deadline for his new play is fast approaching but he's in desperate need of inspiration. That is, until he finds his muse – Viola. Against a bustling backdrop of mistaken identity, ruthless scheming and backstage theatrics, Will’s love for Viola blossoms and inspires him to write his masterpiece, Romeo and Juliet. Critically adored after its premiere in London’s West End, this exuberant romantic comedy will make you believe in love above all.

★★★★★ "An absolute joy from beginning to end!" – London Daily Express

ADVISORY:
Shakespeare in Love is better suited for adults and teenage audiences. The cheeky humor of the show may seem innocent and refined, but it also contains sexual situations and mature themes related to blooming romance, theatrical ego and mildly tortured artistic souls.
