Shakespeare in Love

Shakespeare in Love is a play with music that was adapted for the stage from the 1998 film. A delightfully crowd-pleasing, deeply romantic, and highly adventurous tale of love and drama in Renaissance-era England.

Shakespeare in Love is a play with music that was adapted for the stage from the 1998 film by Tony and Olivier Award-winning writer Lee Hall, based on the screenplay by Academy Award-winning writer Marc Norman, and Tony, Olivier, and Academy Award-winning writer Tom Stoppard.

A romantic piece of historical fiction, the story centers around a young Will Shakespeare as he struggles to find his inspiration. Enter the feisty aristocratic Viola de Lesseps, who longs to be an actor. The relationship they forge serves as inspiration for Will’s greatest play – Romeo and Juliet. This stage adaptation employs tactics commonly found in plays of the Elizabethan age: cross-dressing disguises, mistaken identities, suspicions of adultery, sword fighting, a comedic nurse, and even visions of ghosts are all present, as is the enduring “play-within-a-play” convention that Shakespeare fondly adopted for many of his works. Overall, Shakespeare in Love delivers a delightfully crowd-pleasing, deeply romantic, and highly adventurous tale of love and drama in Renaissance-era England.

Recommended for ages 12+
